Girl in a room with words

I have searched for you
For years
How do you find a poem on a test?
How do you hold water up to the light?
For a quarter
Of a century I have wandered through the world
Looking for them
The girl, her grandmother, the woman who writes
Them.
Not as sad as I remember
The shape of tears
Around all the edges
Of years
