Poetry | I Search For You

I search for you in every face,
A mighty tower,
Staunch, head held high –
Sublime words
Flooding with humility
Stir my mind.

I search for you in every eye,
An evincing window
Diamond clear, reflective –
And yet, like dark esoteric waters
That wash over me,
Warm and salving.

I search for you in every voice,
A deep resounding power
That fills my heart with
A melodic hum –
A velvet feather that caresses
My restless soul.
