One day, a long, long time ago I thought of you;
I thought of your soft eyes and your warm smile.
I thought of who you would become too;
Of the longing you would have, to become only Mine.
My whole Being filled with pride as I called forth your design;
Inspired by My own image, I moulded your form like Mine.
I destined you to rule with Me and placed in your future, a crown;
For one day you will come to Me, dressed in a royal gown.
I gave up My Son, so you may be free and filled with godly pride.
He's here with Me, right now, mediating on your behalf.
Asking, that the hurdles I place on your path,
Be sufficient to prepare you to take your place with His Bride.
And you, oh creation of Mine, cherished with such love divine;
Why do you trouble yourself? Must I say this again?
I gave you My Son yet you fear the faces of men?
For you view your self-image according to man's design,
Forgetting that your image was inspired by Mine!
So I'm leading you to a place where My light can shine,
That you may find the love I have for you, within.
Forget man's pressured ways and clones,
Listen with your heart, to My Spirit alone,
As He reminds you that I still think of you,
As I did a long, long time ago.
Dedicated to a lost friend
