I’ve known you with so many faces
I meet you every where I go
I’m standing at the traffic circle, waiting for a cue,
You’ve got a welcoming sense of warmth in you.
Pristine, pure, loving and calm
You seem to have lived through a storm
Connected both inside and out
Making the world a better place, no doubt.
Your hugs are puddles of joy
Make me feel like a teenage boy
Hair flowing like an ocean’s tide
You show up in my life again, only to go back and hide.
But, for humans, complication
is our cup of tea
I went looking for answers for us
Came back with more questions for me.
I am poor, I am thirsty
Searching for the water of love
Quenching it for short moments
Looking for the rain from above.
There’s the desire for freedom on one side
The other’s got love and thirst
I don’t know what I want
I ask only for the gift of freedom
Tied, with love, in a wrap of trust.
