but i still.

i have climbed highest mountain
i have run through the fields

there is such an ache
in that irishman’s voice
years of conflict, years of longing
that my comfortable heart
watches like war on tv

only to be with you…only to be with you

and the question is
should that “y” be capital
or lowercase
or both
as though in pursuing the beloved
we are chased by the Lover?

oh Why, indeed.

you know i believe it
but i still haven’t found what i’m looking for

it’s not like You aren’t enough
but You are like water in a death valley
the more we drink the more we want

and there are such deep pools in your eyes
that i dip my cup into their water
and it comes up wine
and we will drink to death
and the life we’re still waiting for
