I know it has been long

I know it has been long since I put my pen down on the paper

I know it has been quite a while since I saw Your face in my dreams

But Your thoughts never depart for once in my heart

I have not for once forgotten Your thoughtful whispers in the night

Your frequent  callings wake me up in the night

My hearts beat ,wanting to know

Where You call from

It has been long since I listened to You

That alone breaks Your heart

I hang around Your window

Cos of fear, I can not enter

Then I heard ,Oh I smelt Your breath

Against my nostrils, urging to come home

It has been long, I silently tell You

Home is where you belong

You said

    Tolu, have you been reading my mind lately? I am almost convinced that you read bits from my private diary.

    Ps42:1 – As the deer pants for streams of water,
    so my soul pants for you, O God.

    Tolu, the plan of God does not reveal itself in many ways beyond this- the gift and the calling of God.
    Obviously this is one of does gifts. Thank you for using it for His glory. This is Him loving you and inspiring through you.
