Looking For God

by stewart

For the longest time I looked for God

In the scriptures

And quiet of the holy Temple;

And for me He/She was never there.

Later I took long walks in the woods

And listened for His/Her Voice

Amidst the rustling of the trees.

All those times, I never heard Him Sing.


Then as the years passed

I glimpsed God for an instant,

As my wife caressed

Our baby girl’s hand.


Now, the house is empty

And my heart is very still;

And God constantly speaks to me.

For I have given up the search;

And He has come looking for me,

And is the only One there.
