Longing

What is this longing that lingers in my breast?
A yearning for what, I do not know.
I try this and that, to no avail.
What is this longing that lingers in my breast?
Not money, power, sex, material gain gives relief.
Even what we think of as love doesn’t help.
What is this longing that lingers in my breast?
A yearning for what, I do not know.
