Has it been 1000 years?
Or has it been 1 day?
Time has blurred with it's reality.
I have no reason to keep track.
You can take it all,
Because now I have him.
It’s like he came out of no where.
I didn’t even have a chance.
He had his eye on me for a quite a while,
But I was really none the wiser.
You see, I was so wrapped up in “life”.
So tangled up in myself that I never ventured out.
I had an eye for beauty, but that of the world.
Till he came across my path and and I saw beauty within.
He wasn't like the rest...
He was different.
He was greater.
My heart abruptly fell in love.
Who is this man?
I waited for so long.
Where have you been this entire time?
He was finally here.
I sought out so many others.
Settled for seemingly "good",
my faith lacked in waiting for "great".
Searching for the unconditional in the conditional man.
But then he opened my eyes to more.
An invitation to seek what I was promised to find.
He loved me whole.
He loved me past restoration,
Instead He loved me new.
I was not some last choice,
I was a diamond in the rough.
A pearl of great price.
His desire was to see me flourish,
Not to hide me and diminish my light.
He asked me to be his bride,
And for my life he has committed to fight.
The world...they think I'm crazy.
Too obsessed for my own good,
They tell me to slow down.
"He's all you talk about!"
"He's all you think about!"
"You've fallen too hard!"
"You love him too much!"
But then I smile.
I nod to agree.
Their words are a melody to my ears.
They couldn't be more right.
If loving him means I've lost my mind
Then tell me again, where do I sign?
Because it gets better.
Oh, does it get better.
Do you know the best part?
Have I told you the greatest secret of all?
You see, we’ve never actually met,
Yet my heart knows him well.
He is closer than my breath.
Closer than the very skin on my bones.
He is coming, yet is already here.
He calls out my name, yet holds me close.
He lifts me higher, yet beckons me lower.
His invitation to live, orders me first to die.
The more that I lose, the more with Him that I gain.
He is the servant of all, yet the King of Kings.
His upside down Kingdom,
The world cannot comprehend.
Nor can He be contained.
Yet He loves me.
Isn’t that wild?
Who am I to be desired by this man?
Yet his thoughts toward me run endless.
You see, I’ve never met Him,
Yet I’m spending eternity with Him.
