His Love Swung Low

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
