I Love You
Photography & Poem by Norma Beaird
My mind is full of thoughts today, for you now have my heart,
And now my days are filled with joy, and this is where I start.
I’ll start by saying “I Love You”, for where would I have been,
Without the one who stood by me, who is my closest friend.
The Lord works in mysterious ways; His wonders never cease,
Just when you think you won’t find love, He fills your deepest needs.
The special way we met that day was orchestrated through,
The loving, gentle hand of God, Who loves both me and you.
The love I have for you today comes from my very soul,
For since God placed you in my life, my heart has been made whole.
The moon, it shines much brighter now; I see the flowers bloom,
The sun will cover skies of gray when you walk in a room.
I notice nature when I wake, and realize what was missing,
The birds are singing loud today, for now I stop and listen.
And every morning I can feel a smile upon my face,
For since your love has filled my life, I know I’ve found my place.
A place that I was longing for so very long ago,
A love that’s always close to me, wherever I may go.
And no matter where I may go, you’re never far away,
For you now live within my heart, and that is where you’ll stay.
I reached into my inner soul, and found the deepest truth,
For now there is no room to doubt the fact that I love you.
I can’t believe that God has poured this blessing down on me,
It’s more than I could ever ask, but now I do believe.
The Lord wants us to trust Him more, and look to Him above,
For something that’s so beautiful, the miracle of love.
So now I’ll fall upon my knees and praise His holy Name,
For since you came into my heart, my life is not the same.
And now I’ll say to you again, what rings in me so true,
God breathed new life in me one day; I’m changed, for I love you.
