Love of Mine
He stood upright, like a sentry beside me
My heart barely realizing what was at hand
And changed my world overnight, standing now at a distance
Your smile, your laugh, your kindness
Drawn in the sand of my despair
What God can do in a moment
I find myself wondering, what can this bring
You endured a time, sealed inside
Yet hopeful emerged, and appearing
Steal a heart shattered by neglect and disdaining
Reviving so I am reconnected to the Father,
Hearing the Voice of Truth again
Even worship knows a new freedom
As love grows deep I flower
With yet no touch or embrace
Though I long the time is future
You are my forever friend
Leaning on the everlasting arms of Christ
I wait for the dawn
While you are never far from my heart or thoughts
Even though I cannot express this divine experience
Forging against the tapestry of past and multiplied pain
Lingering for just a glimpse
Of a time of joyful fulfillment
I have so little to offer, bruised reed that I am
Tossed and bent by loss and wondering where do we go from here.
You are the iceman, rescued from a dark cold night,
Warmed by a heart you may never know
Remember me as you journey
Through the place of reunion and restoration
I will be in the background of course
My prayers carrying you even when you are unaware
So that God would see you safely there
When those moments come and you feel alone,
I sing for your soul to capture and translate
His gift of mercy floating your way.
Treasure your days for He has not forgotten you
Not even for a moment.
You are loved.
