Kingdom

Across oceans I have traveled
In search of the meaning of life
Only to discover
That it lies within familiar voices
Old acquainted accents of love
That speak to my soul
In secret languages of laughter

In seeking what I thought I craved
I found instead clarity
That it was not craving
Merely ingratitude for what always has been
Foreign solitude amplified
Those whisperings of love that I had grow deaf to

And now I bask in gratitude
Of the gaze of sparkling familiar eyes
That stare deep into the pith of me
And see all my flaws
Whilst smiling luminessently
With unconditional and eternal love

I do not need foreign realms
Or faraway lands
To complete me
When my own kingdom resides around me
Thriving with life
And beating with love.
