Love Is Here and Now

Love exists

Before, and after, pain.

Sometimes, I don’t know he’s here.

Sometimes, I don’t feel him.

But, he is.

He surrounds me, he fills

My mind with thoughts,

And my lungs with breath,

And keeps my heart beating.

He helps me to keep going,

No matter how hard life seems.

He gives me comfort,

When there is no comfort.

He holds my hand,

When I am all alone.

I wait on him, sometimes,

For what seems like forever,

But, what I don’t realize,

Is that he has been here all the time,

Just waiting for me to say his name.

Thank you, Jesus.
