One day she quit waiting for him…
She no longer waited for the explanation text
or the “i’m sorry” phone call from far away.
She couldn’t wait for him to even realize
the jewel he foolishly threw away.
She dried up her tears,
and pulled herself together
for no longer was it an option
to stay under the weather.
So she thought about him
just one final time
and dwelled on the good and bad moments
that made up their short time.
Oh how she loved him!
How much her heart missed his.
But forever is a long time,
for him to come to his senses.
So she asked God to protect him
and to simply keep him safe
For no longer could she worry
When he was in every sense far away.
She asked that the Lord
would somehow change his path
Because he has such goodness
before he fell under attack.
Maybe one day,
in a different place or time
they could develop the love
Twas of a rare kind.
But she can only keep praying
for him to be safe in the Lord’s keep
and maybe on a day nearby
from his demons he could finally be free.
The girl was no longer bitter
Because deep down she knows she’s free
And the two of them have so much growing
until they are the rarest of beasts
Hope fills her heart
just as she’s dependent on His will
There is such greatness within her
and in His keep, she will not fail.
So weep for me no more,
Beautiful man, don’t forget my face
Because maybe one day
we will see each other face to face.
