Marked

I dove into the waters today
felt the liquid seeping into my skin
I dove into the waters today
felt the cleansing floating in the wind

I dove into the waters
and I saw you looking back at me
refreshing me
submerging me
unearthing me
uplifting me

everything
reminds
me

of you

I tried to forget you
but the sun won’t let me
I tried to remove you
but the roses forbade me
I tried to erase you
but the stars kept painting
glitter every time
I tried
so I gave up the fight
and I let Jesus have it
the One who first showed me
what you
felt like
looked like
sounded like

He lets me see you
when He holds me
the most selfless of Lovers
isn’t He

my Lord you know me so tenderly
my Jesus you see me so intricately
my affectionate King
it’s why I love Him
He cares about what’s in me
He cares about what scars me
He cares about what marks me
and He knows something
about a
mark
it comes from love
love was
His to give
His to send
His to win
and His to end the war upon the world
so we could dwell with Him

He never forgot you

neither will I

neither will you

I don’t want to forget you

there’s an imprint of my heart on His
a sealant of God’s covenant
and as I dream
it’s evident
our hearts were given
Heaven’s kiss

how can you forget a love
that touches you so deeply
you can’t
it stays with you forever

how can you forget a touch
that infiltrates so sweetly
you can’t
it marks you forever

thank you

for how you marked me forever
