To My Husband to Be…. “When you find me”

I love how God works just when you least expect it, he shows up and in this case he showed off…  I had almost conceded that this was not my season for love outside of God, family and friends.  Then God went and inserted “Al-Lateef Farmer” here; with “here” being my heart.  

So here goes…Long before the October night; when you gave up your spot so I could see Mos and Talib hit the stage.  Long before the November evening; where Stevie Wonder played in the background as we sat in the car and talked well into the night.  Long before the January afternoon; I came to pray for you as you laid in the hospital bed.  Long before the March day; where words of love were spoke.  Long before you found me; I wrote this poem for you…

When You Find Me….

If these brown eyes can cope with this world.

I will make it to your arms for refuge.

Calmed

by your smile or gentle touch.

I will know that you are real

I will know you when I meet you.

 

I knew you before you secured your place next to me.

I have felt your eyes connect with my spirit.

And it was out of fear

that I ran off to hide.

I will know that you are real

 I will know you when I meet you.

 

You have been placed in my world to be loved.

I will honor your ability to protect me.

When I am lost I will look for your guidance.

I will know that you are real

I will know you when I meet you.

 

I will sing your praises to all when you are away

Make you proud

to see me when you end your day.

And I will know that I am loved

 from your touch.

I will know that you are real

I will know you when I meet you.

 

And although at times it may seem

that I can make it alone

I respectfully take my place

next to you on your throne.

There is no doubt

 I will know that you are my king.

Because it is then I will feel safe in your arms
