I Searched

I searched for
Love
I rummaged
Through the streets
Homes
Churches
I tried to find it
Underneath the
War torn debris
Beneath the sheets
of the
Orphan
Below the tears
that fell from the
I delved
Deep
Desperate
Enquiring among
Friends
Couples
Families
Ministers
Seeking the
Lonely
Abandoned
Neglected
I probed them
In my distress
In my anguish
To help me find
Their heads shuddered
From side to side.
Their eyes
Lowered
Their lips sealed
Their sigh heavily

Frantic…
I ran amongst the
Crowds
Examined their faces
“Have you seen love?
Do you know love?
Can you help me find?
Love?”
Frozen
They stared
Solid
They stood
Firm
They turned away.

Suddenly,
Truth came
Running towards me
Caressed my hand
Looked into my eyes.
Compassion
Patted my hair
Trust helped me
To stop
To listen
As Love looked
Up at Me,

Love
Provided me with
Assurance
Confidence
Peace
Security
To know…

You will find
Love
Where you find
Unconditional
You will find
Unconditional
Where you find
Unrestricted
You will find
Unrestricted

You will find
Unlimited
Where you find
Unqualified
You will find
Unqualified
Where you find
Undeserved
You will find undeserved
Where you find

There in abundance
You will be acquainted
With infinite
Infinite will introduce
You to
Absolute
Absolute will
Show you
Love is
Love does
Love waits
