Rest in My Love

There is still so much life to discover

But you can wear my love like a warm cover

Whether you are near or travel far

You will always be safe here in my heart

With the certainty of Heaven above

Darling, you can rest in my love

Thanks, Ruby! It is more of a song idea and the words of a chorus just poured out. It started with the concept of resting in love. It came to me last night as I was about to go to sleep. Of course I had to write it down because I loved the concept too. Hehe I have had a really trying month or so and thought how nice it is when I can just rest in someone's love for even just a small amount of time. Makes the other issues easier to face.

So lovely, dear Shan ... to rest in someone's love. We all need rest and to rest in another one's love is the best.

Voted up and more and away

That is a wonderful thought, especially the part about traveling far and still feeling secure that someone home is waiting for you.

Thanks, Faith Reaper. I think so. Sometimes it can be as simple as a hug and someone's company for awhile. Other times, for me, I just want to be allowed to pour out my heart as it is in that moment, no strings attached or judgments made.
