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.
Thank you M
