My Beloved

I can hear Him coming
His footsteps are light
His pace is steady

He speaks softly to me
With words of love
And a riveted gaze

His eyes are bright
His smile is broad
Joyful is his countenance

Never have I seen such beauty
Yet He is captivated by me
And pursues my heart

Soon I will greet Him
And we will be together
For all of eternity together

Impatiently I wait for Him
I cannot bear the wait
He must be drawing near

I hear the long-awaited knock
Quickly I rush to the door
The hour has come

There He stands
He takes my breath away
My Beloved has returned

Composition Date: July 10th, 2010

Holli’s Notes:
This is one of my favorite poems. I am so excited and impatient for the return of My Beloved, to see His beauty and splendor.
