My Quest - Poem by Sara Stowell

My search began as an early teen,
I wasn’t certain what I’d find.
I saw my goal once, in a dream,
And thought it could just be my mind.

I'd wanted to feel loved so many times,
A needful heart, vainly searching.
Uncertainty, my only crime,
Unsteady legs, weakly lurching.

And when I found the love I sought,
My yearning was not sated.
This burden wasn’t what I thought,
For another quest awaited.

No longer did I seek just love,
And so, discharged my knightly role.
I chose to live more sorrowful thereof,
For love had not nourished my soul.

And thus the time passed, one by one,
Each fading slowly out of sight.
I thought my questing days were done,
For I had strayed far from the light.

But there were lessons yet to learn,
And separate paths I had to walk.
I hoped, one day, that he’d return,
For long, I listened for his knock.

It was a day that never came,
Though time had come and gone.
And had my life remained the same,
I might not wake to see the dawn.

I chose to leave that road behind,
With all the places that I’d been.
Not really sure what I may find,
While learning how to live again.

But belief has never left my side,
It will not let me be undone.
Just have faith and will provide,
Perhaps then, I will find someone.

And so my quest begins anew,
I don my armor once again.
Let my arrow fly straight and true,
Into the thing I hope to win.

For you know thy servant’s soul,
And everything I’ve ever done.
I need a person to make me whole,
It is why I seek someone.

So here I am upon my quest,
A soldier tilting windmills.
But I shall not find time to rest,
Lest I know love; or my heart stills.

My search began as a young teen,
I wasn’t certain what I’d find.
I saw my goal once, in a dream,
And thought it could just be my mind.
