Here’s a little poem I wrote, I though you might enjoy it.
Why do I tell you I love you?
You need a reminder.
I need a reminder.
You have impacted my life and I can’t help but thank you.
You have surprised me just as I started to think life is mundane.
You are drowning and I want to save you.
When I say I love you
I am not merely stringing sounds together.
I am telling you a story, your story, through my eyes.
I am rejoicing because there are seven billion people in the world and you are here with me.
I am thanking God for the exquisite gift of you. Your hugs and the light in your eyes.
I am pleading desperately that you might know I’m here for you. That you’re not alone.
When I tell you that you are precious
I mean I would not be the same person without you.
I mean it hurts me to see you in pain, when I can brush away your tears but not your sadness.
I mean the creator of matter has had you in His heart since before yours could beat.
I mean your laughter is balm to my ears, beautiful and a carrier of joy.
I mean please don’t believe that diamonds belong in dumpsters, because you don’t.
