Why I wonder?

Updated on November 11, 2010

Why I wonder?

I search the halls for the one who can tame my soul.

I look into the deep recesses of my mind for the one,

who can take me away from the pan and rage that

fills my heart.

But tell me why I cannot find him, has he gone to the

places I cannot?

Or has he merely disappeared into the morning mists?

I have sat here in my locked world, within a place no man

has gone, waiting for him to find me and calm the waters that

storm throughout my being.

Why does he not exist? Or does he exist and I just have not

found him?

I roam the castle of my heart, wandering every room and hall.

Like a ghost unwilling to remain behind these walls.

With courage I leap into the blackness of heaven.

As faith lights the way along this dark and lonely road.

Why I wonder, what the future holds?

I feel him so close, yet so far away. I know he too is searching

and wondering the same as I.

For the scriptures of our lives are not for this world.

Until the calling of greatness has shouted our names.

So for the moment we'll share gifts greater than pearls.

Our hearts that spill blood as feelings run through our veins.

My love come to me, and let us not wonder why,

let us live our lives as they were destined.......

      Laurie , the search is a wayward path , just when you really need to find you're way , Boom , you are lost ! And when you least expect it .....there it is . I believe love will find all , whether it's wanted or not .Whether we're ready or not. Stay well . Great writing!

      I guess I always found love when I least expected it! Or maybe it found me!

      I think Abraham Lincoln reasoned that two people would never find each other if they failed to look. I always found that love found me when I was looking in the other direction, a bit distracted from the hunt! LOL! Thanks for a very nice verse. WB
