let our love be

November 6, 2009

when we look to the horizon,
and see dark clouds fast approaching,
let us take that time,
to lower the sails.

when that eerie silence
before the storm
makes our hearts uneasy,
let us tie a reef knot
and hold each other closer.

when rough waters
rock the boat,
and the wind
threatens a wreck,
let us not abandon ship.

and when we’ve been
battered and tossed…

let our love be the anchor
that stabilizes our ship.
let our love be the compass
that guides us back to shore.

let our love be…
the calm after the storm!

for my love.  i stand with you.  beside you.  just hold on tight. i love you.
