Listen… In the Waves And Quiet There I Am

When you still your heart…

And stop repeating yourself…

Quietly gaze at the waves and rhythmic crashing on the shore…

There I am…

In your thoughts and feelings…

Attentive to the stillness of dawn…

As the sun energetically rises into the sky and I warm your day…

The birds chirp and melodically sing a sweet song…

Across the unceasing motion of the ocean I breathe fresh hope into this moment…

Walk with Me…

As your footprints mark the sand until the tide returns…

Here I imprint your heart with My promises…

Where time cannot wipe away My words…

I am beside you…

I watch over you even when you are oblivious…

There as the tide ebbs and flows…

I remain close…

Never taking My eye away from you…

When the wind flushes your cheeks with saltiness…

And sea sand blows vigorously through your hair…

I murmur My ideas into your thoughts…

Steadily the morning breeze whistles above the sound of the moving water…

Absorbing the cries of the seagulls call…

Still your soul and hear Me all around you…

My love reflects on your heart like the sun glistening on the morning shoreline…

Constant and continuous…

Never ending and ever repeating…

    Perfect timing. Read this poem while waiting for roadside after a near collision on the highway that caused me to blow a front tire. This poem gave me a small sense/ reminder of his perfect peace. Thank you!
