1009 There Is Always You - Poem by John Knight

In the vista wide before my eye
the shining guiding star of midnight sky
the evening breeze was very cold and dry
I looked for Peace - then - there was You.

In the soft glow of campfire light
and all the noises of the night
until the dawn of morning bright
I looked for Joy - and - there was You.

In every footprint on the sand
alone - no one to hold my hand
horizon far - I look for distant land
I looked for Hope - yes - there is You

The haunting cry of snowy soaring gulls
a distant memory at my heart string pulls
the booming crash of waves my senses dulls
I looked for Life - ahhh - there is You.

The wide horizon of the shining sea
I muse on how things really ought to be
a Paradise on Earth for you and me?
I looked for Love - now - There is always You!
