Ask

My heart asked my eyes
To go looking for you today
But they couldn’t find your face
In the crowds staring back
So my heart asked my lips
To tell the tale
But they couldn’t find the words
To speak
Of joy unspeakably
Terrifying
In depth and height
Broken
Over time and place
Strewn
So all my heart could do
Was ask
