Not Yet Wonderful Things

A love of my understanding…

A Dusk Till Dawn Diary Dedication…

these eyes have seen such splendid sights

i have felt in my hands those glorious delights

of daffodils growing six feet high

and reaching for the northern lights

the endless warm days of brightened blue skies

that shimmered the gold in mothers’ green eyes

a gift of new life that doubled the shine

of the moon as i knew as she winked at the night

these lips have screamed at the sky in furious contempt

for a safe place to lay a childs’ weary head

I have wished for certain nights to never find end

for the oceans to part and the world to descend

these feet have been content, i must say

to swerve and to sway, to be walking briskly away

from rock to rock and from orchard to plain

leaving only footprints and taking only the same

this heart hears a whisper it can’t quite yet comprehend

for this is how it always has been

i know nothing of you,

not your laugh or your scent

those hypnotizing eyes of yours,

i most certainly have not seen

still sometimes when mine do close,

I can see you looking back at me

i only know of you in these pixilated pieces

eventual exchanges and theological thesis’

embedded in the red ink of passionate letters

of the spinning of moons and planets and forevers

the memories of your unspoken verbs

in the fascinating tales i have not yet heard

perhaps you are an ocean that runs far and wide

or the shivers and chills on a cold new york night

a grand canvas painting hung in a palace of spain

or the sweet smell of cut grass just after the rain

perhaps you are everything that could never be explained

these bones do now promise

as they never have before

of this one thing unknown

they are most certainly quite sure

in all this mind’s been dreaming

in all that these eyes have proved

it is only a love of my understanding

that has shown the strongest truth

so if you should find me today

under this bright summered sky

or if it may be a world away

on a dimly lit cold winter night

if it should take forever

then forever it shall take

this heart will faithfully wait for you

As only for you was it made
