I LAMENTED, FOR I FOUND NOT MY EYE

I HAVE TRAVELLED THIS LONG AND DISTANT ROAD IN SEARCH OF YOU MY BELOVETH.  
WHY MUST YOU HAUNT ME WITHIN THE CONFINES OF MY DREAMS? WHY MUST YOU 
TORTMENT ME IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY AND THE COOL OF THE NIGHT? I HAVE FOUGHT 
THE ANGRY FOULS OF THE AIR AND HAVE DEFEATED THE BEAST OF THE FIELDS, THAT I 
MIGHT CONTINUE THIS QUEST IN SEARCH OF YOU.  YET, TO NO AVAIL HAVE I EMRACED 
NOTHINGNESS.

I HAVE SEEN THE UNWANTED LIGHTS OF THE NIGHT SKY.  PLEASE LET ME BE AS THE BLIND 
WHO SEE ONLY WITH THE EYES OF THEIR HEARTS. DO NOT LET ME AWAKEN ANOTHER 
DAWN WITHOUT YOUR LOVE OF EMINENCE.

WHAT EPIDEMIC IS THIS THAT HAS BEFAILED ME.  HAVE THOU NOT KNOWN SINCE THE 
DAWN OF TIME THAT WE WERE MEANT TO BE.  YOU HAVE COME FROM THE VERY TOUCH OF 
MY EXISTENCE. FOR YOU ARE THEE, WHOSE CENTER MOVES ALONG THE CIRCUMFERENCE 
OF MY WHOLE BEING.

MY DARLING WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN THE SEARCH FOR THIS ENRICHED AND 
PRESERVERED LOVE WHICH AWAITS FOR NO OTHER BUT THEE? WHY HAVE THOU HARDEN 
THINE HEART AND TURNED A DEAF EAR TO MY WAILING AND WEEPING FOR MY MISSING 
RIB.

OH MY EVE, WHERE CANST THOU BE?  EACH BREATH THAT I TAKE WITHOUT YOU , 
BECOMES MY AWAITING  INSCRIPTION ON MY TOMB IN MEMORY OF THE SEARCH FOR THEE.
THUS SHALL IT READ:HE DILIGENTLY SEARCHED FOR HER WHOM HIS SOUL LOVETH, YET 
SHE NEVER CAME FOR HER ADAM. OH HOW MELLIFLUOUS WAS MY MIND AND HEART, FOR 
THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE MISSING.
