Catch you, I may never do,
But in my heart, I'll forever pursue,
The essence of you, wild and free,
A reflection of the untamed in me.
In a realm of shadows and dreams untold,
Where whispers echo, secrets unfold,
There I wandered, lost in the night,
Yearning for a beacon of guiding light.
Through the darkness, a flicker appeared,
A gentle presence, drawing me near,
With every step, my heart raced anew,
For in this game, I sought to catch you.
You were the wind, wild and free,
Elusive as the waves upon the sea,
A spirit dancing through the mist,
Leaving behind a longing twist.
In fields of daisies and meadows fair,
I chased your essence, unaware,
Your laughter echoed through the air,
A siren's song, beyond compare.
With nimble feet, you danced away,
A playful tease, a fleeting sway,
But still, I pursued, determined to find,
The enigma that captivated my mind.
Through mountains high and valleys low,
Across rivers swift, where time does flow,
I raced against the fading light,
Guided solely by your ethereal sight.
Yet, as I reached, you slipped away,
A fleeting shadow, destined to stray,
But in the chase, I discovered anew,
The beauty hidden in catching you.
For it was not your form I sought,
But the essence of the lessons taught,
In every chase, a journey profound,
In every loss, a treasure found.
And so, I release my grip on desire,
Content to let your spirit inspire,
For in the chase, I found my own truth,
An eternal flame, a love uncouth.
