Looking for Your Face


From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,the unfathomable grace
of the face that I was looking for

Today I have found you
and those who laughed and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking as I did

I am bewildered
by the magnificence of your beauty
and wish to see you with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden

You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstacy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your efflugence
has lit a fire in my heart for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart is a place of prayer
