Look up at the stars
Connect to infinity.
You are not alone.
I sat on my hardwood floor,
my back against the wall,
wondering why this dry spell
seemed to last so long?
I yearned for someone,
hoping there was one for me
but learned to accept God’s plan,
even if it meant there was no one else
but me and my dogs
getting older by the minute.
When I walked out into the darkness
and saw the glitter high above,
I remembered it was there every night
Even when I didn’t see it for the clouds,
Even when I cried myself to sleep
with tears that watered the garden
of my weary soul.
Gazing at the glitter overhead
dried my tears with love that never ends.
God, who heard my cries,
had it all figured out.
And when the time was right,
Brought love home to me.
