Chasing shadows

When I need you most you are not there
When I’m crying, fighting with life and grief
When I’m hurting beyond the touchable
When I’m wounded in the unseen
When I’m weary and desolate
You are not there

To ease the pain
To comfort me
To heal me
To share with me

Yet,
When I dream
When I find peace
When I wake
When I try to forget 
You are there

When I breathe
When I admire and compare
When nature’s beauty confronts me
At the most importune times
You are there

Yet overall you are not there
Yet present
Your spirit and soul touch me
Yet your physical presence deserts me
Why?
