Forever it shall take

These eyes have seen such splendid sights
I have felt in my hands those glorious delights
of those 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

I have wished for certain nights to never find end
for the oceans to part and the world to descend
While screaming at the sky in furious contempt
for a safe place to lay a child’s weary head

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, taking only the same

This heart hears what it can’t yet comprehend
for this, my dear, is how it always has been

I know nothing of you,
not your laugh or your scent
Those hypnotizing eyes of yours,
I’ve most certainly not yet met

I know of you in blurred pixilated pieces,
in eventual exchanges of theological thesis’

Embedded in the red ink of love letters
Within the spinning of moons,
among planets and forevers

The memories of your unspoken verbs
echoed in tales I’ve not yet heard

Perhaps you are an ocean that runs far and wide
or the shivers and chills of 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 cannot be named

These bones do now promise
as they never have before
Of this one thing unknown,
they are most certainly quite sure

Should you find me today
beneath this bright summer sky
or worlds away
on a brisk 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
