Too many were the years that went by
too long since their last embrace
so many things had happened to them
now here they are face to face.
The heartbreak hurt inside his chest
the pain a wrench on her soul
so much time they could never get back
precious memories that circumstance stole.
For as long as he could remember
the smile on his face hadn’t shone
and she could not think of a time
when her heart hadn’t carried this stone.
They had went about their lives each day
and days turned into years
they both had carried much sorrow
they both had shed countless tears.
Now the hour at last had come
the time was finally here
she ran into his welcoming arms
he held her near and dear.
They looked over one another carefully
couldn’t believe how much they’d changed
they smiled and walked into his home
where stories and laughs were exchanged.
As I watch and listen in wonder
at the miracle happening before me
my heart so happy, my smile so wide
so thankful for the opportunity to see.
Two people finding each other after so long
the story a dream come true
and I think this is what heaven must be
a homecoming of family and life anew.
The gracious love of our creator
finally bringing us home
at last safe in the arms of his love
no more as orphans to roam.
This poem is based on a true story, one in which I was blessed to see and so proud to behold…..I have been so inspired and lifted up by this joyous occasion, that I had to write a tribute , and mark it in remembrance, sealing the time with words that will be read and felt, carrying on the memory into eternity and to the threshold of the city of our God and creator…….
Thank you for reading
