Love searching for you

June 3, 2009

What I treasure the most is
A relationship of love
The kind a mother has for
A child of her womb
Sometimes mothers are broken
They can’t give their deepest love
They had children much too soon
My mother was one
My parents did not know how
To withstand their failing love
Their children suffered great loss
Everyone has a story
Each person needs to be heard
What matters is love
The message is forgiveness
The work we have is: believe
We are breaking from within
Love gently pursues
I look for answers
To comfort my internal
Brokenness and pain
The trouble in my journey
Did not start with my choices
My parents handed my theirs
Now I make my choice
I have four children
Who know what my choice has been
One thing they know for sure
Is that I love them
That will never be changed
They have memories that help
I’ve found a deep joy
That is larger than I am
Love’s healing power changed me
Love I wish for all
At one time I hoped for it
Now I celebrate and thank
It is a hidden love
That wants to be found by all
Love searching for you

    Terry, I don’t know how well you’ll remember me, one of the Underwoods from Searcy. I just happened across this, or maybe it didn’t just happen. I needed to read this today. Thank you for sharing the depths of your heart; they reached mine. God bless you.

  2. Terry,

    You express your heart beautifully. Thank you.

    I’d like to share two things with you.

    During my time with you, God used you to reach in my heart and let me FEEL His love for the first time in my adult life. I knew it in my head but my heart was far behind.

    I forgave the people from my past that left me so damaged many years ago. Just recently, however, God reached into my heart and enabled me to begin praying for my mother. What an amazing freedom!

    God bless you.

  3. thank you brother of mine for expressing things that also fill my heart. You’re the best !
