Emotions surround me,
and I long to share them.
I find a reason for joy, I long to share it,
With friends, with family,
Lost across time and space and place.
I find a reason for sorrow, I long to ease it,
And I turn to strong arms to support me, and find none.
I find a reason for excitement,
I look, but I can find none of those who would share it.
I find a reason for fear,
I seek solace, and turn to find only bitter cold winds and emptiness.
I find a reason to rejoice, and listen,
but I hear no voices raised in joy for a feat accomplished.
I listen with my ears,
but I find no voices raised in shared joy, or sorrow,
I find no voices raised in support in times of fear,
I find no voice to share my excitement or my joy.
I find none when I listen with my ears,
But when I listen with my soul and with my heart,
I hear the voices of those long lost,
raised in joy or sorrow,
or bringing support when I fear,
sharing my excitement and my joy,
I hear them tell me we shall find each other soon,
and be able to listen not just with our hearts and souls,
but with our ears and eyes as well.
And I can do nothing, but tell them the same.
