I looked to the moon for guidance
But she rode the sky a stoic reflection of someone else’s light
So I went to the sun for answers
But he held me in his gravity, the eternal spin, Fusing light into life, there was no time for questions.
So I looked to the rain for solace
But she could only wash my body clean
My mind remained in turmoil
So I looked to the wind for kindness
But he just teased along my arms, taking the rain with him and leaving me alone
So I looked to the mountain for shelter
But the great stone face was smooth
there were no weathered fissures to offer rest
So I looked to the sea for love as it stretched out endlessly before me
But all it did was crash a pulse upon the sand different from the beat of my own heart
I could not peer into its depths, just as it could not look into my own.
So I looked to the sky for the future’s hope
But all the stars shed a light from millennia past
So I looked to myself for inner peace
But the indifference of the world had chilled me
Finally, I looked to you
And found in your face the moon and in your eyes the sun.
Your words wash over me like the wind and rain.
Your arms hold me in granite embrace.
Your mind engulfs the fathoms.
Your smile fills the sky.
And I see in you a world unto your own.
