He loves you

Lied to on so many levels, deceit to take my heart,
For a chance to find your heart and mind, for your spirit to make a new start,
These plans you had never included me, a means to run away, 
But my eyes spoke truth your soul had forgotten, and you came to me anyway,
The set up was empty and broken, what you saw in my eyes was my God,
Longing for your heart to draw closer to him, not to run, but to face your heart,
yes, you lied out of fear, but I love you just the same,
For the memories to bring you back, yet my heart got caught in your rain,
My God placed his hands around my heart, and told me to trust in him,
I will hold your through this storm, but could you please do the same for him,
