Longing in my heart for something unknown

with faltering steps and feeling alone

I am silently waiting for someone, somewhere 

to fill me with the warmth of feelings that are shared

Tired of the passion that makes me cry out

with yearning and feeling like screaming aloud

I long for the day I can finally share

The love of that someone who's waiting out there

    Very lovely and richly poignant, so beautifully rendered with delightful flow and end-rhyming, yet sweetly brief as if succinct, how this deliciously renders the plea so many hearts seem likewise echo, each lost in our own little worlds, reaching, crying, wistfully longing empty-armed. Paired with that heart-wrenching piece, which again, so many echo painfully, la this packs a punch, to say the least. Thanks for sharing. In a sense I'd say I keep thinking its answer is in flesh and blood, and in another more true sense, the Word of God says it best: "..He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness." Ps 107:9b?, if only we'd see that. I enjoyed this very much, maybe because I am too fond of bittersweet pieces. Thanks again.
