You took my breath away. You amazed me with your embrace, your encouragement and affections toward me took flight… But I didn’t recognize you, because I didn’t KNOW LOVE!
As a child there was NO true LOVE to speak of. Don’t talk, don’t trust, don’t feel were the rules of engagement. When a child is raised in abuse, a case for “defense” is made. I could not lower my sword & shield long enough to let you in… my heart, my soul, my life.
I didn’t KNOW LOVE!
I am so sorry for your loss and now mine. I could not see that the adultery [of my heart] was really mine until I lost my first love. I KNEW NOT LOVE, until I recognized how ‘good’ I had it and from the One who authored it.
THANK YOU LOVE for a marvelous affair. I thank God for You and to death I take You… no turning back, no turning back.
I didn’t KNOW LOVE, until I recognized HIM!
[And I do get now what it is, to not take care of what I’ve been given. So from here… There is Grace! Thank You Lord!]
