Waiting-A Valentine's Lament

I don’t need to know
What you are doing,
Who you are with. 

I don’t need to know
What you are buying or wearing;
Where your mind and your heart and your body are. 

I don’t need to know
What you are thinking or planning or feeling;
Your hopes, your dreams, your aspirations…
Your desires. 

I WANT to know. 

I want to know
That you are happy, that you are at peace;
That you are under His watchful eye and care. 

I need to know
That I am under His same care;
That the peace I so desire for you is available to me. 

I need to know
That I matter; that my thoughts and plans and feelings
What I hope and dream and aspire
Are of some value, warrant some attention – if not from you, 

From Him.
