My Soul Longed

“My Soul Longed”
By: Arvell Craig

My soul longed for, the love of it’s life. 
A kiss in the day, and a touch in the night. 
Impromptu escapades where we travel by flight. 
And then a stroll on the beach, beneath the moon light. 

My soul longed for, the image of love. 
As Adam knew Eve, his helper made fit. 
Intimate but unashamed, within covenant. 
With our words we are joined, with our vows we commit. 

My soul longed for, a life long affair. 
Infinitely infatuated without a worry or care.
But then my soul longed no more, and love became clear. 
I looked past a woman, and saw God standing there.
