His Love Swung Low

His love swung low Gathering me up Leaving nothing behind Broken pieces and busted edges Acknowledging my need to heal

His Love Swung Low is a poem written by Kelli J. Gavin and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme PIYAR  for the month of February

 

His Love Swung Low

 

His heart was meant for mine

It found me not a moment too soon

Searched for me- never giving up

Each wrong turn- always rerouting

His love swung low

Gathering me up

Leaving nothing behind

Broken pieces and busted edges

Acknowledging my need to heal

Even if my heart aimed in other directions

His heart remained present

Constant and sure

Confident and knowing

I would return for his love that swung so low

Mended over time

I have always been thankful

For his heart was meant for mine
