Searching Souls
Poetry by Marla Deaton

You see yourself Without a smile on your face. But I see something so lovely That time can not erase.

You express your soul With such wisdom and rhythm. I know I could've loved you If I went back in time.

I think I could've been good for you But we were decades apart. I would've looked in your blue eyes And guarded your fragile heart.

I wish I could've talked you down From needlessly feeling blue. And maybe you'd looked in my eyes And guard my fragile heart too.

I hope you found what you were searching for That you wrote about in your prime. I know your tender words Made way from your soul to mine.

And made your mark in time. But it made me wonder...

How could someone as lovely as you Be denied a love that's true? And how could someone with so much to give Have such wisdom and still feel blue?

Well, sometimes I feel that way too. But that's what searching souls do.
