Tell Her

it hurts to think of you
but I want to
when you’re gone
I feel you here with me
when dawn
leaps into the
morning song
I won’t forget you

it hurts to dream of you
but I want to
when I wake up
reliving the embrace
of how you used to hold me
I’ll always love you

it hurts when I speak of you
but it’s real
how my heart combusts inside of me
reminding me
inviting me
to say your name
and smile aflame
like you did
when it was you and me

he found his lover
so tell her you love her

speak to me
with your sweetness
it’s how I liked
to hear you
kiss me
with your gentleness
it’s how I liked
to feel you
when the wind carried us
into the cosmos
elevating every essence
of my heart’s inflection
to tell you I love you

love is the natural reaction
coming out of me
when you’re with me
when you’re in me
when you’re filling up
my waterfalls
with incandescent
you see it
how I love you
he feels it
every lovenote
in the lyrical
afterglow abounding

he thought she would stay

she said I’ll never leave you

but she left you
and you didn’t want her to
she left you
and you didn’t tell her to
why didn’t you tell her to
she needs to hear
you say it
not let her
choose her fate
and yours
tell her
you love her too much
to give her up

tell her to stay

like the way
ivy stays
wrapped around the oak tree
the thunderous rain

tell her to stay
like the way
starlight stays
fashioned in the night gleam
the roaring waves
in love
she stays lit up
because He told her to
and she wants to
hear Him say
He needs her to

she needs you to say it

tell her how you really feel

“Then I will continually sing of Your name, fulfilling my vows day by day.”
‭‭Psalm 61:8‬

“Because he holds fast to Me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows My name. When he calls to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.”

Psalm 91:14-16
