sandpapery tongue
pink and rough against the skin –
a statement of love


When We Were Younger

When we were younger
We knew each other
You liked me
I had someone else
So you found someone
To her, you were wonderful
I was miserable
And longed for what she had

You still liked me
So you kissed me
Then we went our separate ways
Common ground was gained
Through heartache and pain
Ten years passed
Then you found me

You made me yours
More than friends we became
How strange fate is
Though a wonderful thing
Never would have thought
We would love each other
We were meant to be
Even when we were younger.

A Love That’s True

If only he were like the guys I dated before him
The ones I gave a few years of the on again, off again waltz lovers sometimes do
Before coming to a moment in time when love just
And you feel nothing for the other person
Until you’re with someone new
And you start to think about the others once again.
If only that, but no
He has to be different
But still the same
Or maybe it’s really me who’s changed
Not because of me, but of God’s work in me
Because when I said “I do” this time, I meant it…
For better or for worse
And I want to do His will above all else
Regardless of my lover’s worst.


I know that I’m not perfect
I’m not yet meant to be
The One was ever perfect
Is the One who set me free

Born of a virgin woman
He walked amongst the lost
And died a most traumatic death –
He saved us on a cross

Perfection sacrificed Himself
Merciful and true
Jesus was the perfect lamb
Could ever make us new

And one day He will raise us up
We’ll meet Him face to face
It’s then we’ll gain perfection
According to His loving grace.
