Calling Me Back

I can feel the gravity calling me back,
I'm curious as to why it makes me so sad,
but in my heart i can see you hurting,
when you speak, your words are so discerning,
you hide under this blanket so very well,
trying not to reveal, but i can tell,
your smile continuously hides the pain,
and i wish there was something that i could say..
my connection to you goes beyond words,
when you speak in between the lines, my heart starts to hurt,
i sometimes have to turn away and pretend,
that i really just didn't hear what you said,
i sigh, but in my heart i know,
that you have to go through these motions in order to grow,
i want you to know that i understand,
i wish that you would let me hold your hand,
but this pride you have that pushes away,
to keep your image, you hold everyday,
you believe if you show weakness it will show your not strong,
but im here to tell you your so very wrong,
remember in our weakness God shows his strength,
showing we are broken yet beautiful, God is calling us back again,
opening doors for healing you can't even see,
using me to get to you, and you to get to me,
we are made in his image, our relations with others relate,
our hearts are connected, he made it this way.

    Wise and true words . . . love and forgiveness are intertwined and in this case will need to be seasoned with a good amount of patience's. Well done.
