What Is This Thing I See? (Poem) - Poem by Dave Tanguay

I seen it in the man turning the corner as he walked down the
Busy city sidewalk
I seen it in an old man’s courtesy - as upon the door - so gently -
He did knock

I seen it in a young boy’s enthusiasm as he cheered on - his Teammates with such glee
I seen in in a baby’s smile as she took her first steps - towards

I even seen it in a dog’s bark as he ran to his master’s side with
Such passion
What is this thing I see that is always alive and never is out of

I’ll give you a clue it’s what rules the world and all living species
Upon it
If you haven’t guessed it as of yet my friend you lack a great
Deal of wit

For of course what else could this thing be but LOVE - in
Its entire splendor
A force so powerful it can make the strong and influential -

Yes, it can be seen with the naked eye - for those whom are
Not spiritually blind
For even the blind that have not a physical sight - with love they
Are never confined

This love I speak of originates from the heart and it has such a Deafening sound
Go out and see for yourselves if you look inside of a person - that’s When you’ll see and hear this beautiful sound
