I heard you lived in Palestine
Born of a virgin womb,
But all I found were drops of blood
Beside an empty tomb.
I heard you lived among the stars
I searched the Pleiades,
But only found an angels’ song
Upon the cosmic breeze.
I heard you lived within our minds
As man’s philosophy,
So I traversed its twists and turns
And earned a fools’ degree.
But then you whispered in my ear
And filled my heart with song;
I found you walking at my side—
You’d been there all along!
