I have searched for you everywhere.
I looked for you in the changing moon,
and in the rising sun.
I swam in rivers cold
and walked amongst tall trees.
I lit candles in your honor, and tried many hats on for size.
I listened to the whispering wind
and tasted burning forests in the air.
I watched countries destroyed
and questioned all the death.
And then, when all the
and nauseating smells threatened to break me,
and I realized it was You,
and were everywhere,
and had been with me all along.
