The One

A lonely heart, searching
Desiring to dance in the arms of one man
One who would give his life for mine
Longing to lock eyes with, hold close to, sway together

Always seeking human touch
Worldly affirmation,
Manly confirmation
Just to animate my heart
To ignite any validation

Tell me I’m beautiful, I pray
As I parade for endless, faceless "hims"
Say this is enough,
All that I am is not too little or too much
Faces come and fade away,
Insignificant and insincere

Yet, You wait Lord
Always ready, arms outstretched
Looking over me in adoration
Patiently anticipating an invitation,
to dance with Your beloved

I longed to dance with one man
One who gave His last breath for me
The One whose eyes have never strayed
With You Lord, carry me away
