A love so different that all the others before it seem like dress rehearsals.
|Together and Finally Whole
By Marilyn Mackenzie
Is there anything we havenâ€™t shared
In this courtship of a year?
Weâ€™ve talked of life of, of love, of God;
Weâ€™ve laughed and shed many tears.
Our tears have been of joy and pain,
Our laughs both hearty and nervous.
Neither wants to be rich in things,
Each longs to be in Godâ€™s service.
Our hearts are tied together, yet
Still distanced by miles and miles.
We yearn to be embraced and held,
Our love has survived such trials.
Strength is ours, survive our love will
Itâ€™s different than any weâ€™ve known,
Perhaps because of our faith in God,
Or in aging, wisdom has grown.
Reasons donâ€™t matter, hearts embrace,
Weâ€™re joined in heart, mind and soul.
God assures us that weâ€™ll one day be
Together, and finally whole.
