the search

two souls reunited
spending a lifetime apart
searching without knowing
deep from within the heart

reaching out to others
not sure what the search is for
yearning for something unknown to us
always needing, wanting more

often we are mistaken
or settle for less than exact
knowing something is missing
wondering what it is that we lack

few of us may be lucky
in knowing what the search is about
and try to share and enlighten us all
so everyone can figure it out

for if we are truly able
to understand what is deep inside
then when we're lucky to find it
there will be no fear to run and hide

so as our search continues
and we look to all that we meet
knowing that out there is someone
who will finally make us complete
