Good bye, Mr. Right


I'm giving up that one fine morning
of waking up in bed with the guy
my heart would willingly
fall in love with and die for.

I'm giving up the sumptuous breakfast
we’d peacefully have on our dining table,
those sandwiches, fruits and milk
beneath a meaningful conversation.

I'm giving up that great company,
those hearty laughs, hugs and kisses,
those books we'd read in comfort and silence,
and our exchange of wise words.

I'm giving up those ecstatic Sundays
of lifting up our hands together in worship,
of uttering prayers, singing praises
and giving warm embraces.

I’m giving up that wedding ring,
that sacred promise at the altar,
those tears of overwhelming gratitude
and that loving and tender kiss.

I’m giving him up, Lord.
I’m letting go of “Mr. Right”
if he really does exist.
I surrender my romantic dreams to You.

I'm choosing You, Lord.
I'm choosing to have fine days, meals
and promises with You!
I'm choosing the cross and the habit.

Lord, You are my One True Love.
