Red String

By Soulfire

Two people in this giant world, on paths that occasionally paralleled but didn’t cross
Never knowing that something in their lives was missing, an unexplainable loss
Their lives continued unaware that the other was even in existence
But when two souls are bound to meet, it doesn’t matter the time, space, or distance
I love your heart, your spirit, your passion, and the way you love
I believe we were destined to meet, a great orchestration from our Father above
As time goes on, our love grows and our souls connect, but it gets challenging and hard
Moments in time, bumps in the road make us falter and put up our guard
You’re so funny, intelligent, driven, direct, and incredibly kind
How many days, weeks, months, years, or lifetimes until I can call you mine?
When I pray about us, I am constantly reminded that we cannot force our plans
We must lean in to Christ and trust him to hold this relationship in His hands
At times, I feel like a vessel lost on the sea and you are the lighthouse calling to me
But waves rise over the bow and violently crash down, pulling me further out to sea
How do we navigate the waves, control mother nature, and force what we want?
I don’t think we can so I try to go with the flow and you think I’m nonchalant
You are second to me only after Christ
And to be with you, spend time with you, and love you, I would pay any price.
 Please remember, just one thing
We will always have this red string.
