I Am There

Look for me when the tide is high
And the gulls are wheeling overhead

When the autumn wind sweeps the cloudy sky
And one by one the leaves are shed

Look for me when the trees are bare
And the stars are bright in the frosty sky

When the morning mist hangs on the air
And shorter darker days pass by.

I am there, where the river flows
And salmon leap to a silver moon

Where the insects hum and the tall grass grows
And sunlight warms the afternoon

I am there in the busy street
I take you hand in the city square

In the market place where the people meet
In your quiet room – I am there

I am the love you cannot see
And all I ask is – look for me
