'Only One'

Only One

What can be done for an aching heart,
That's tried of being lonely.
To distract is pointless in every way,
For its desire is a companion only.

But not just any will suffice,
Only the right one will do.
For when the unsuitable leaves it's mark,
There remains a scar of a jaded hue.

The sadistic trauma ensnares,
A protective wall is built of sorrow.
Though the other's emotions are impugned,
It's impossible to conceive the reality of tomorrow.

Even if the heart lay engulfed in desolation,
Tis better for emptiness to abide within.
Then to adhere to the folly of a manipulative soul,
And allow a forlorn existence to win.

So in solitude I impatiently remain,
Waiting for the one solacer of my heart.
For I cannot breathe nor think nor truly live,
For once we meet... then our one life may start.

This poem was originally written two years ago, but when I read it again a few days ago, it hit me! I am so in love with Jesus Christ, that He really and truly has become the One Solacer of my heart. It wasn't until my relationship with Him became more than just going thru the motions that my life truly began. God may send a gentleman into my life as a partner, but on HE can be my true soul mate.

Oh does He!!! Literally, within a couple weeks of my above comment, God brought a wonderful God-focused gentleman into my life. He has provided me with an amazing partner in Christ! It takes three to make our relationship complete. The Holy Spirit, my husband, and myself.

I am so happy for you! There is no greater relationship than one with God. He models the relationship that we should have with others, our neighbors, our children as well as our spouses. All of our relationships should have God at the center. I have found the woman made for me and it was the Holy Spirit that brought us together. I could not have found her on my own! :-) Thank you for sharing this.
