Where You've Been
I’ve walked the halls of your hidden heart
I’ve seen the tears that stained your memories
You thought I couldn’t find my way around the brokenness
But I made a path
It looks familiar, but not permanent.
I see more than what you’ve allowed me to
I’m reminded of your smile
and it’s appearance causes joyful disruption
I’m reminded of your laugh
How fills the empty space of a room
I’m reminded of our talks
And the sincerity in your voice
I know how you loved to dance,
No need for an occasion.
I’m reminded of your patience,
As you wait upon me.
& You answered and let me in,
An unexpected visitor, who made a home
Upon entering, I knew everything
I had already known you, fully.
even the ones unknown to you
I have loved every part, and cherished you.
The broken, the joyful, the lonely, the content,
I’ve loved all.
And I’ve walked through each with you
You my child, are exquisite
You are extraordinary.
I see past the mess,
And into your beautiful heart
There is much to your being
For I created it.
you live in it
And grace saturates your soul
My child, I smile upon you
For I know where you’ve been
I know where you are
And I know where you’re going.
I wrote this, as if Jesus is talking to you. He knows your heart, to it's very core. Read this poem as though he is speaking it to you. You are radiant and you are HIS.
