The day I met you
I remember the connection we made
It was Simple yet… different.
Couple months went by till you asked
If I would be your girlfriend
I remember being scared.
I remember not wanting a relationship
Singleness was blissful
I was satisfied with enjoying that season.
But here you came.
Knocking at my heart’s door
I turned you down so many times.
I rejected all the love you tried to give
I fought and I fought hard
To keep you out.
Out of my heart.
It took me a while to love you
But because I was afraid to.
I know that you will say I’ve helped you change so much
You have also changed me.
You have shown me things that I never thought existed
Or if they did, that I didn’t believe I deserved.
Your love for me is relentless and that was the scariest for me
I never had the opportunity to be loved without condition or consequence
The only genuine Love I knew before you was God’s love.
His unconditional love
Though you are growing in the Lord,
Your heart is already following in the steps of the Father
The love you show me day after day
Is what broke through my walls
My walls of fear and brokenness
My walls of hurt and doubt
When I expected you to be mad, you were not moved.
I tested those waters of your heart
Until I thought for sure that you would be done with me.
Let me tell you what I have realized about you
You are strong.
It takes a damn strong man to handle a broken woman
To love her when she should be hated.
To comfort her when she should be rejected
To treat her like your queen when she least deserves it.
You are my blessing
I heard God tell me,
“You’re welcome. He is what you NEED.”
My blessing from God, breaking through my impossible walls
Into my heart
And now I know I am safe.
Safe with you.
I am happy to live every new day
With you by my side
I never knew I could be loved like this so fiercely and gently.
I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!
