I Sought You

I sought You in the silence, where stillness quakes the soul

Where doubts arise in violence, where thoughts the mind cajole


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But even in the quiet, You sat along with me


I sought You in the heavens, where stars our thirst ignite

Though winking giggles leaven the gravity of night


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But You were winking with them and smiling at me


I sought You in the river, that ever-changing flow

That silver-loving sliver, where golden flakes aglow


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But even in the riches, You reached to be with me


I sought You in the forests, where mazes blur the mind

Where cunning toxic florists, could even charm the blind


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But even in the toxins, You found some health for me


I sought you in the music, where tremb’ling notes despair

Their broken hearts so fearful that life plays out unfair


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But even in the heartbreak, You cried along with me


I sought you in the science, where atoms swarm with life

Where logical defiance aborts belief with strife


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But even in the logic, You kindled faith in me


I sought You in the soil, dead, veiled by a stone

That good will never spoil, That sin will never clone


I thought it was unlikely, that there you’d surely be

But even in that void…

You came and You held me
