Did You Find Me

Did you find me?
Iím there with you, or at least youíre here with me.
As I moved closer to your voice, the vibration got stronger.
And now, youíre always here with me.
But just out of reach.
Like a lost thought that plagues the mind hopelessly trying to retrieve it.

I hope you found me there when you unpacked your belongings.
Did you invite me to help you populate your new space?
Did I burst into your room like a spirit being released.
Maybe you nodded to me as you put each thing in itís new place, reassembling your life.
Iím there with every unfamiliar shadow that teases your periphery.

Youíre painfully aware that Iím in the fabric of your world now.
Youíll always feel like someone is there, just out of sight.
Strange faces somehow all look familiar in the market when you buy your apples

My smell is gone by now, so wrap yourself in my shirt and feel me surround you.
Feel my fingerprints on your soul when you touch your body and remember it belongs to me.
Let me lead your feet when you dance alone at night.
Iíll dance with you.

You cant hear me, but I hope you still have my words.
I aimed them straight for your heart. †Thereís no species of words like that where Iíve been. †
So Iíll lay in the dark beside you to watch your chest rise and fall. †Listening as you share your story with the wind in paragraphs of breath.

Each night, when the tears burn your face like candle wax, search the darkness for me †
Know the flame flickers with my heartbeat across your walls.
Then before bed, fix your gaze on the shadows and meet my eyes as you blow out your candlelight. †
As you lay your head on those dark curls listen for me to whisper,
ďGoodnight love, Iím happy I found youĒ.
