Once upon a time, Joseph, my beloved, wrote me a poem. He called me his gravity. In the small amount of time I spent with him today, my heart sang words of love and I wrote them.
I place it here for memory. I have been overwhelmed by gratitude in this life today. For my girls, my husband, my family and my best friend.
I built my life roots in God’s wordMy faith, the foundation of which I built
My daughters are my seeds.
Growing and reaching out for the winds
Waiting for the right breeze to pick them up and carry them off into adulthood
He is my gravity and he contains me inside his universe.
Through the hectic swirl of my emotions
He places all of me in orbit
Each moment its own planet
Each day a moon surrounding a world
His love has given me pause
Instead of the chaotic Meteor shower of my past
I am an organized solar system
He places me inside the stars of his sky
All of me special
Each aspect a sparkling ball of fire
He is the sun that shines down on my earth
His light rays giving growth to all that the light touches
I have grown in his light
I bask daily in those rays
My soul has been filled by this amazing
Only God could orchestrate such music
And my heart beats grateful every moment in this light
