If I Could Say

If I could say just one more thing

Before my life flits away,

I would tell you how precious you are to the King –

His life, He was willing to pay.

His pain, oh He bled

Like hell itself –

He went through the depths for you

And He waits and He aches- He watches chances slip away

As His heart is pierced right through.

He watches you striving, He watches you fall –

He longs to strengthen your heart;

He sees the destruction that leaves you broken –

He loved you from the start

He catches each tear and keeps them in a bottle

He saw you before you were born –

And you’re so busy living life on your own

His very existence you scorn.

And all He longs to tell you is, “You are worth everything” –

But for now, He cannot be heard –

Yet a glimmer of hope is found now and then,

In a heart that He has stirred.

A gentleman, He will not rain down fire

Or force you to come to His side,

But He promises to be a refuge and help –

A place where you can hide.

Just one thing – His love never fails,

And He’ll wait a lifetime for the prize –

You were worth it all

You are worth it all

Irreplacable, in His eyes.

I enjoy personal writing (poetry and prose), editing and reading. I want to share my writing with a new audience, dusting off some of my older poems as well as writing new material. The aim is to encourage and inspire!
