I did not dare open my heart again,
I did not dare to care.
I did not dare to let myself dream of a once-upon-a-time dream that I though was never going to come true.
I did not dare go there.
But he came along.
He awakened love.
He broke my stupor, so I dared once again.
I dared to open my heart.
I dared to care.
I dared to dream the dream and go to a place I promised I would never tread on again.
I dared…and this time, I prayed.
Oh, but how I got it all wrong!
For this was not The Father’s will.
And much as I try to hide behind the mask of friendship, it will never be so.
For God is not glorified.
So now I will stop.
So now I will let go.
So now I will let the dream leave my heart once again.
So now I will close the door behind him.
In the meantime, I will trust.
In the meantime, I will hope.
In the meantime, I will pray.
