your love is a song...


symphony
I'm so nothing. I have nothing to recommend me, nothing truly special in the eyes of the world. But in your eyes...in your eyes, I see truth. I see an opportunity to be who you created me to be. You show me what it means to be loved, and I try to show my thanks for it by loving you back.
I think of your love as a symphony, as music that seeps through my thoughts, my inhibitions, and finally, touches my soul. Can I feel that, please? Can I be lost in the songs you sing to me?
You show me your love through daily occurances...a spontaneous thought...a beautiful day...the history you've orchestrated...the people you place in my life...the song I'd forgotten, but heard all the same, at just the right moment. And at that right moment, you tell me what I need to hear.
Please, help me listen to what you say, because I know you speak to me in ways I love.
And I'll continue to love you back.

Thank you, Jynene! What a compliment! I'm so glad someone else shares my love of this music. I'll most definitely check out the Jane Eyre soundtrack. I'd love some new music. And thank you, too, Anonymous. I need to be reminded of that sometimes.

I love the thought of God singing to us. It makes me shiver.
