Searching For Love

I’ve been searching for love,
I’ve even asked for it from above.
I’ve searched through the depths of the sea,
And looked from the tallest of trees.

I’ve been searching for love,
To be matched up like a pair of doves.
I’ve looked inside of you,
And even gave a chance to someone new.

I’ve been searching for love,
Trying to make a fit, like a hand to a glove.
I’ve prayed, and cried and smiled,
Waiting here in the wild.

I’ve been searching for love,
And found myself trying to get rid of,
The wonderfulness that is me,
I change for no one that is true indeed.

I’ve been searching for love, in all the wrong places,
I look in the mirror to see recognizable faces.
I must have been wearing a visor,
For I could hardly recognize this tiger.
Lines on her face, darkness under her brows,
Cheeks bones strong and definition they still allow.
Scars where she’s fallen, creases where she’s laughed,
Some pain so deep, you couldn’t see it if she cracked.

I’ve been searching for love, so I take another look,
At this goddess who’s been mistook.
I see beauty and passion,
I see courage and compassion,
I see honesty with a sense of fashion.

I see love…its here,
I can say with no fear.
My heart on my sleeve,
I’ve been searching for love and I can’t believe,
Its always been in me.
