I look around at darkness and despair and I do not see you. My life is a black hole of emptiness. Where are you! Where did you go? Please come back to me, wrap your arms around me, and hold me firmly in your strong embrace. It is safe there in your arms with my head lain gently on your chest. I feel your heartbeat as it calmly whispers to my fears. Comfort me, console me, and caress my face. If only I could lay my weary head on your soft shoulder, once more.
What went wrong? What made you leave? Are you a man of your word, or not? You spoke so sweetly when you first began to call. You sent the sunshine to light my way and flowers to brighten my day. I no longer see the sun or smell the fresh aroma of flowers. I only see rain and thunder rolls overhead. I am frightened; my heart panic stricken. Where is my hope? It left when you did.
Will you not return to me, will you not hear my pleas? Why have you turned your face from me? I no longer hear your voice; it is silent. The quite that surrounds me is deafening. I cannot even hear the beat of my own heart. It once beat so vibrant like the deep colors of autumn, strong and powerful. Now its voice is lost in the midst of the raging torrents that assault my soul.
I miss you my Lord, lover of my soul. Forgive me! Forgive me! Forgive me! I locked you out. I closed the door. I pushed you away with my indifference, my arrogance, and my neglect. I took you for granted while you patiently waited near. Waited for me to call, to tell you of my day, to express how much I love you. You waited so patiently, but I did not call, I did not speak to you, I did not listen when you tried desperately to get my attention. Therefore, you quietly excused yourself from my life.

Is that you knocking, my love? It is! Are those sunflowers you hold in your hand, for me? They are beautiful! Yes, I would love to take a stroll with you on this clear calm day.
