I adore you.

Not like that.

Like this:


I long to hold you,

Whisper to you about how much,

How deeply, you are loved.


Loved for all that you are to me.


I imagine time when you are close,

And I am listening to you,

Knowing that you have trodden my path,

And survived;


That you have been with God

in the waiting,

The sorrow

and aching;

Found solace after singlehood.


I imagine You holding me;

Feeling safe enough to cry

As You cradle me –

To let go of feeling,

Abandon myself to Your care.


I long to share my thoughts with you,

To sense Your total acceptance of me,

Revealing God’s Perfect Peace.
