To the Comforter & My Love

To the Comforter & My Love

Blessed be your name, oh God…

In the brokenness of the night

When I weep upon my pillow

and I long to be held tight

By the one I share my heart with

the one who makes me complete

Oh Savior, be my refuge…

guard & protect me from defeat

My heart at times is weary,

and it aches, with tears that pour

As I long to have my soldier home,

to see him walk through the door

A simple moment shared in person

and not just over the phone

to hold his hand and kiss his lips,

a moment shared inside our own home.

Oh Lord hold him as you have held me,

be our comfort in the night

When we rest & dream of love & us

& when reintegration will be in sight

Like the rush of young, fresh, new love,

I feel butterflies when I imagine his kiss

thoughts of an embrace or a touch of the hand,

oh the moments with him that I miss…

6 months, my Love, since I’ve felt your touch,

since the moment I left your embrace…

26 weeks since I felt your kiss,

my world is not the same place…

I will continue to miss you each day you’re gone,

like a drought that longs for rain

but will take comfort in the warm embrace of God

until you and I are together again.

“Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge.” (Psalm 61:1-3a)

‎”Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.” (Psalm 62 6-8)
