As you lay next to me I wonder

I ponder whether God crafted you from the bone of my bone, the flesh of my flesh

I wonder whether your flaws were so matched with mine that my heart claims a peace when you are near

You are my younger selfs wildest dream

A figment of my imagination that God saw fit to bring forth.

Rising from the ashes of false hope and mirages of things

Of men seeking only to devour

To take what benefits

Discarding what remains in their stead.

As I journey with you, I’ve come to understand why he speaks so much of love

Not love in the earthly sense

But love that transcends the brokenness of our current existence

A love that covers all, where pain does not destroy, where hurt is a temporary measure

You are a warm embrace,

A cool breeze on a summers day

An instrument of God’s peace.

A soul like none before you
