I once was looking for love and I could not find it.

It eluded me for many years.

That which I believed to be love was only a vanishing mist over the waters of fantasy;

the deep waters of fantasy.

I dared to dip my toe past the mist into the cool wetness of liquid reality.

Refreshing as it was, still it was not truth.

I once was looking for love.

“I’ve been calling out to you,” said Love,

“You have ignored My pleas.”

“Who are you,” I called, “Are you the love I’ve so longed for?”

“I AM.”

I once was looking for love and I found the only Love that mattered.

His love forgave me; His love swept me far off into distant lands of truth.

Truth is love; love is Truth.

As I grew in True Love, a gift was given:

Another love, tangible but just as true.

“Is this mine, too?”

“It is.”

Truth gave me a gift in you.

A love that can be touched;

a love that can physically convey the True Love.

He gave me you.

You are my gift.

I will cherish you always.

I once was looking for love and True Love gave me you.
