I Have Found Love


Did you see
Did you hear
Are you blind
Are you deaf

I have found Love
She was hidden from me for years
The wind whispered her name and I feel as dead
I arose and went after her

I had almost caught her
In my haste I tripped and cursed
Now she runs hard away
Where are the hot coals to purify my mouth

I stole a chariot to follow
I climbed the roof to gain my sight
I swam the river of shame
To cross to the other side

There love is
In her robe tightly bound
I race ahead and wait
And there she ran into my arms

Love spoke my name
And all the angels in heaven clothed me in white
The sun was my soul in that instant
It's radiant heat welling up inside me

Love is in my arms
We hold each other tight
The heat melts us as wax
We no longer exist... Love has won

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
