What Did You Do?…

What did you do to deserve me you ask,

well only God knows the truth.

But you must have done something right,

and our meeting is positive proof.

Everything in life happens for a reason,

even the most unexpected connection.

I couldn’t be happier that it was you,

for whom I have such a strong affection.

What did you do? You can’t understand,

why God has blessed you so greatly.

Especially when you know deep down inside,

you haven’t done much for Him lately.

But God knows your heart, as only He could,

when you don’t even know it yourself.

That’s why He saves the best for last,

hiding it way up high on a shelf.

High enough so others can’t reach it,

for it was only meant for you.

So, think about that, the next time you’re tempted,

to ask, what did you do?

Pulse…

Pulse…

Steady, constant

throbbing, rhythmical, beating

Life’s subtle vital signs

Heartbeat…

Heartstrings…

Heartstrings plucked lightly,

intensity based on life events.

Each string uniquely singular,

with its own melodic sound.

Joy & laughter playfully tickle,

while another string strums a melancholy tone of sadness,

Anger binds the heartstrings together,

into one solemn chord.

Louder,louder into maddening unison,

until, SNAP…the quiet noise

of heartstrings silenced.

One by one, each string vibrates,

yearning for its former individuality

that familiar sound….echoing back.
