Looking For You

Looking For You
Looking For You

Questions, only questions and no answers. Have you ever had a vision of how things should have been? Do you ever have dreams of being another person in another life? Do you believe in everlasting life and that you have lived before? Have you had someone in your heart that you just can’t shake? Do you believe in soulmates? Have you ever felt you are still looking for someone and that person is looking for you?

Looking For You
Day in, day out, spent my lifetime looking for you,
Thinking destiny and fate would give me my due.
Been women and lovers down through the years,
Never been you, the right one, or so it appears.
I have visions of how you look, smell, and smile,
Through many of my loves, my heart still in exile.
When young in the Honky Tonks I would quest,
For the woman of my dreams to put my heart at rest.
Oh, I had women, more than most men could hope,
Dancing country swing trying to get my heart to cope.
Round and round the dance floor, looking into their eyes,
Trying to find the right one by telling each other sweet lies.
Even with a gal on my arm, I felt always alone,
Even while making love to the women I have known.
Day in, day out, spent my lifetime looking for you,
Thinking destiny and fate would give me my due.
Maybe you were my soulmate in a distant past life,
You don’t exist in this time as my life is full of strife.
Decided you were real, we were lovers in years past,
Looking for you now, or in my lives later, until I find you at last.
Am I a fool hoping you are just a tic of the clock away?
As the years roll by without you and I turn gray.

        A very melancholy though hopeful piece, Kurt. It is sad that many people may never actually find “the one” that they are meant to spend their life with. Love should come with a treasure map to tell you where to look. Some people get tired of looking and settle with someone “close enough.” Nice work and thought provoking.

    John took the word I was looking for to describe how I felt after reading this, melancholy. I also felt that glimmer of hope and perhaps the drive to continue the search. Excellent poetry my friend.

    I have been astray, far from reach, my soul hungering for the pen, when I read your words, it brought back so many memories of strife, how I hungered in those hunger years, dreaming, the fog lifting, praying that she would be there, my soulmate forever lasting, the search ended the harmony of two souls as one. All the bad leaving me, the life rewarding and feeling lifted up in the clouds to the one I’ve hungered for all my life on this plane, then finally she is there a vision, yet so real I can reach through through the vale of time. Oh, my lord, we were meant to be forever in eternity, we struggled so in this world and then in harmony we’ve met. Kurt, you are such a romantic, you hunger as do I for that perfection, that brilliant moment when all comes together, and peace at last, our heart are silenced in each others arms. My friend, you will find her if you already haven’t. Beautifully lamented, the melancholy touched my soul. Bravo.

      Vincent – such a wonderful comment from the master himself. I would write poetry every day if I knew you were going to comment on it. It humbles me that you found a little bit of yourself in my words.
