To the Faceless Man in My Dreams…

For some reason, I woke up with this poem on my mind, so I thought I'd share. Let me know what you think.

You have visited me often; more recently than before
Always making me feel as though you know me through and through
An unexplainable feeling of joy
That finally someone understand me
I smile, laugh, and talk with you so freely,
Not at all clumsy like when I’m awake
You know just the right things to say
And always when to same them

I long to be in your presence
To feel your loving words drape over my worrisome shoulders
So that they sooth the rigid muscles, calming my very being

I long to sit with you
Talking about much or nothing at all
But either way, I’d leave knowing I had the best conversation all day

I long for your companionship
When a simple act, like telling a story
Opens up the very fabric of time, to explore through our imaginations

I long to go on adventures with you
Whether we tame the wild beasts… at the zoo
Or go on a "lion hunt" in the backyard
The destination always the same… imaginative adventures

I long to ask you random questions
Where you patiently answer each with a smile
And a question in return for me

I long for you to challenge me
To make me the person you know I can be

I long to meet and get to know you
I long for my life-long, best friend
I long to not feel lonely
I long…

Love, love, love it, Mer. I am praying that God will bring you that man soon!
Did you know I had a faceless man of my dreams before I met Preston? When I met him, I knew he was the one I had been dreaming about.

That would be great! As much as I'm sometimes lonely, I definitely want God's best for me. I'd rather be a little lonely now, than miserable in a marriage. You know?

I just figure I'm such a unique girl, God is looking for the perfect gem for me. :) He's given me dreams and desires which I can't accomplish alone. I don't think He would be so cruel to create these passions in me, only to never have them come to fruition. What do you think?

I agree completely. Another verse I like, "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." (I think that's Psalm 37:4, or is it 34:7?) That doesn't mean your desire for the latest sports car, it means those desires that He placed within you and created you for. Your husband is going to be an amazing person. I can't wait to meet him!
