 Reflections of My Heart

A Long and Lasting Love ღ KKD ღ

A  Long  and  Lasting  Love

Isn't Love
supposed to be
a forever pledge
for an eternity

A seed planted
when nurtured and loved
Grows strong beneath the light
that shines from above.

This seed within unknowingly planted
in the many seasons past
Lay dormant, still and protected by Him
by only His loving hands this mold was cast

It is asked so many times
why did we wait so long
Well all things are in His time
Guess now is the time of our song

Maybe we were not ready to sing
and our dance not quite right
Oh the years we danced the outer circle
Never daring to take flight

For years I have loved
and called it friend
Never daring to venture away
from my land of pretend

But you reached for my hand
and I willing took yours
Across the line we cautiously stepped
opening unknown doors

I can not mark the exact time
over the past ten years
It seems its such a gentle flow
from friend to when love appears

Our never shaken friendship... Undoubting trust
Tears dried... A shoulder to lean upon
A needed voice in the dark of night
a foundation love is built upon

So my Heavenly Father
on bended knee I pray to You above
that this gift You give is one
of A Long and Lasting Love.
