Delightful Unknown

She wanders in what she silently knows
Reasons with herself why she can’t raise her hopes
And the skies are still and the ocean flows
Slow like a familiar song that has carried her through
The changes, the tears, strange nights thinking of someone who
Her eyes have never met, but her heart knows
And today is another time in the same old place
She still strives to rise above
Claim her home and comprehend the strange depths of her love
And she wonders if patience ever runs out of time
And how long will the emotions she carries stay locked inside
Before they understand the intensity of this light
Enough to show her where she needs to go?
Or will she forever be an echo, only heard way down below?

She wanders in what she silently knows
And steadies her heart, carries herself uncertainly, yet gracefully
Towards a delightful unknown…
