Going in Circles

 I’ve climbed the high mountains
and walked through the desert.
I’ve swam the deep oceans
and sat through rough weathers.

I’ve driven the country
and soared above cities.
I’ve ran through the woods
and I’ve stood in the distance.

I’ve indulged the best foods
and smelled rich aromas,
yet something keeps telling me
this journey’s not over.

I’ve looked all around.
For what? I don’t know.
I’ve opened my ears
but no sounds can be heard.

I’ve met many people.
I’ve laughed and I’ve cried.
I’m young but I’m old,
It’s a race against time…

I now search for one,
to love and to hold.
I traveled each corner,
above and below.

Are you looking for me
like I’m looking for you?
I don’t know where to find you,
where the hell do you go?

They say love is patient,
so I wait and I wonder.
While you look up at stars,
I see clouds and thunder.

The day will soon come
when I’ll hold you real tight.
I’ll tell you I love you
as I look in your eyes.

Until then be happy,
so smile and be good.
It’s only a moment,
I’ll see you real soon.

  6. when you hear the silence
    then you see the unseen
    when you feel the silence
    then you see who you are…..
    I like your thoughts
    Take care
