LONELY FOOTFALLS

How deep must be the night
Inexhaustibly deep
To awaken such endless restlessness
In countless sleepless souls

And there you see Love
Wandering in lonesome search
Like a homeless stranger on earth
Restless, tireless, nervous

Moving from heart to heart
Knock knock knocking on human’s door
‘Tis not the love of partner pleasure
It is higher, it is Compassion

And through the restless night
Quietly in spirit we search
As though we were desperately listening
For love’s footsteps in our hearts.

– Che Chidi Chukwumerije.

  1. “And there you see Love
    Wandering in lonesome search
    Like a homeless stranger on earth
    Restless, tireless, nervous”

    Another beautiful and moving poem – loved this stanza most.
