Within Me

By: George M Gibson

Deep within this body, I hold
Is a mystery so great
Like I, it lives day by day
Wielding to unerring fate

It is everything I've ever dreamed
It is nothing I desire
It is the smile of every child
It is the flame of every fire

It is the heat of passion
I hold within my heart
It is the haunting fear
That preys me in the dark

It is all I have come to be
It is everything I do
It is this yerning deep within me
that tells me... I'm missing you
