Come Hell Or High Water (standard:poetry, 100 words)

When it's something good we have a saying in the South. "Come hell or high water I'm going to do it." This poem was inspired by that saying.
 



Come Hell or High Water 

* 

Through rough patchwork fields 

you call to me. 

As loud as church bells 

ringing in the wide open country, 

as clear as the deep blue sky, 

I hear your heart's voice. 

But you're nowhere 

to be found. 

* 

Cry louder! 

My heart screams. 

Come closer! 

My body feels you nearby. 

Where are you? 

My mind sees your light ahead. 

Making my way through the rows 

I answer your call. 

* 

No matter where you are, 

how far you travel, 

our love will always 

lead me back to you.
