A Boy’s Wish

A Boy’s Wish

Many years ago
A little boy knelt down
And made a special wish to the Lord

“Do you think I could find
A special someone to love
Where all of my heart could be poured?”

The boy listened quietly
But no answer came
No voices boomed from above

So being impatient
He went out to find
The place to show all of his love

He searched high and low
For the place in his wish
But never could find the right way

He searched in the darkness
He searched in the light
But it never appeared, night or day

So years passed by
And the impatient boy
Grew into a tired young man

Once again he dropped down
Once again he looked skyward
Once again the Lord’s silence rang

But just when it seems
That all hope is lost
That’s when the Lord comes through

Because the very next day
The boy, now a man
Saw his life’s wish come true

She smiled at him
Her beautiful eyes
Were what made him finally rejoice

Because deep in those eyes
Was all the world’s love
And in them, he heard the Lord’s voice

“Sometimes” God said
“We have to be patient
To find what we’re searching for”

“Your heart has been grounded
For too long, my child
Now let your caged heart soar.”

Many years later
He would look down and smile
As he caressed her, he could hear her soft sigh

In his arms was his angel
And though he could no longer walk
His heart still flew just as high

                               for Luana,
                                                        on our 1 year anniversary
                                    April 4th, 2002
