Poem: May Love Come Soon

Heart beats
Gut tightens
Agony fills
Loneliness freezes.
I fall to my knees
I pray to the Lord,
“O Lord,
I am tired of being alone
How much longer must I wait?
Yes, I have the love of
Friends and family.
It is not the same.
Is there no one
Whose heart is stirred?
Who longs to feel my touch?
Who longs to hold me close?
Who finds me worthy of their love?
I do not begrudge
The love others have.
I only wish it
For myself as well.”
The Lord answers me,
“You know the truth
In your heart of hearts.
Be who you are.
Love will come
When the time is right.”
I know the truth of this
Yet fear resides in me still.
Yet I know
No other path
Fit for me to walk.
I continue
As I have begun.
Be who I am
Let love come
As it will.
May it be soon.
