Something’s Missing

I looked for you in fairytales and stories from my childhood;
I wandered through the breezy fields because I thought I should.
I hunted through the Amazon and saw amazing creatures;
But answers were withheld from them, they wouldn’t be my teacher.
Then finally I found a spot where I thought you would live;
In friendship and in family, but I could not forgive.
And on occasion, I thought I found you lying in my bed;
I even thought I married you, but that’s a tear I shed.
I gave up on the search for quite some time before that day;
So angered at the people in my life that went astray.
Then all at once, with just one glance, you flooded to my eyes;
And though it took a minute you were hard to recognize.
That’s when a realization struck that I could not believe;
I searched the whole world up and down, and you were here in me.
