Lost in You

I wander restless in the wilderness of despair, in darkness and grief. Not knowing which way to turn, or who to trust. Stones hinder my path, twisting my ankles, wrenching my bones.
Deep ravines threaten me and the mist comes down to engulf. I am utterly lost.

A tender gentle voice cries out;
Where are you my sweet beautiful child?
I miss you so; where have you strayed?
Silently I strain.
Call again.
Call again.
I wish to be found.
Where are you my beautiful child?
And stopping.
I hear.
A still small voice.
I feel a touch of tenderness; and there He is, by my side.
My rescuer. My friend.

You wrap me in the duvet of your love.
I snuggled in, content.
No darkness is seen, or felt; just your beautiful light.
The warmth of your embrace seeps into my soul, bringing healing, and a peace that has long since eluded me.
And I am now lost in You.
