word for the day: ache
i have never met you, but i think about you often. sometimes, when it is late at night and i am lying awake in my bed or when i am walking around the quiet neighborhood by myself and my mind is allowed to silently wander, i think about all our days together. i know that you are not perfect, for of course you are only a broken human just like me. but there is something about you that will not let my heart go.
when i think of you my eyes fill with tears. my throat chokes and words are pointless. my heart and my arms ache.
you are right beyond the horizon. i believe you wait for me and i try to wait for you. it is hard sometimes. i can almost see your eyes looking into mine at times and i have so many unanswered questions that seem left hanging.
my heart joins with the cry of hannah and i say, Lord, when? when will you give to me...?
and i walk the tight rope of living a life thankful for what i have right before me and a heart that aches for what i cannot let go of - the hope of you.
someday i hope this ache will be filled with tears of joy at seeing your face after such a long time of waiting.
i love you.
