Insignificant artifacts

I searched the nooks and crannies, the shelves long jam packed,

I searched the back room cupboards, ‘tween the books all neatly stacked

I searched the small, dark and dusty corners, carefully hidden,

I fell in among the lightless rooms and searched in places forbidden,

I climbed into crevices and chasms filled overly with temptation,

I found in each and every place, no place for my true station,

Then from a seed a glimmer found, a sweet and hope filled dream,

Then sunlight shed out across my chilled bones like an ever warming beam,

And all those insignificant artifacts that I had gathered like a prize,

Had nothing on the simple, first shining look, of your tiny sweet blue eyes.

I searched among the glories of existence and could find but on thing true,

That hope and dreams and love sit within my hands, when in them I have you.
