True Meaning Of Love - Poem by Kailynd McGregor

Walking along, all by myself
Strolling through the woods, dark and wet
The towering trees slightly bending
The wind whistling through my hair

As I keep walking I suddenly hear
A still small voice telling me, come closer
Listening to the voice leading me on
I feel that it’s the Holy Ghost,
Telling me someone needs me

I stumbled upon a little girl
Standing alone in a meadow
She stoops as tears fall from her face
It makes me so sad, so I ask what’s wrong

Ever so slowly she tilts her head
Tears streaming from her big brown eyes
She shows me her hand
Closed tightly around a little locket

She starts to shudder and I take her hand
She tells me her father has just died
And I cry along with her and hug her tight
I tell her it’s ok and that she’ll be alright

She tells me he gave it to her
The little heart shaped trinket
Given to her Just a few months before
He left for war.

She says she’s alone, with no one to turn to
She says she’s scared with her father gone
I try to comfort her as I walk her home
Walking hand in hand as we reach the gate

She says thank you to me as I turn to leave
She says that she’ll be all right
She knows that God is with her
For his tears are the rain
And he’s crying because she’s sad

So on my way home, I stopped in a grove
I sat there and pondered
Whether or not I had helped her
Or if she really helped me

To understand the true meaning of love
Her father gave her a locket as God gives us rain
The locket for when he was gone
The rain for his sadness when we cry

I shall keep this memory with me in my heart
For as I reached my home the sun came out
And I knew it was a new day
To show the meaning of love
