He held unto her,
clinging unto his pain
gathering all strength
he supported her and loved her
they told him, love wins
he loved her but she kept looking away
Is this what Hosea felt for Gomer?
Is this how God has loved me?
have I been this elusive to God.
He loved her believing she will change
while they dated and courted,
their love blossomed
his heart was full of joy
and one day, after baby number one
she became restless and unhappy
post maternal depression had taken toil on her
he was too busy to notice
she sought other ways to help her heal
sought attention else where
and just when she was at the verge,
he came home. He loved her
He loved her the way he should have
he wished he had been consistent
but Work made its demands.
she was wrong and empty
he found her and held her hand
his love never left, he just got busy.
