Everywhere

Everywhere

You sought so hard to find me

that you missed me, even still

you waited on a miracle,

for my promise to fulfill

you looked to the horizon

and the dawn was too far away

but child, you must remember

I dwell not only in the day

I am the softness of the dark,

and the sweetened scent of rain

I am the hushed calm of silence

and the strength that comes of pain

you may look to the horizon

but I dwell not only there

I’m on the journey with you,

look for me everywhere.

I am the memory of the sunrise

that lasts throughout the night

and the momentary blindness

that will lead to truer sight

I am the gentle touch of wind

and the music of a storm

and the flame, though small and distant

that still manages to warm

I am the softness of the dark,

and the sweetened scent of rain

I am the hushed calm of silence

and the strength that comes of pain

you may look to the horizon

but I dwell not only there

I’m on the journey with you,

look for me everywhere.
