Precious, the words spoken in love

She spoke your name today.

Precious, the words spoken in love.

They were conceived in her heart,

Grew within,

And were given life through her lips.

 

The new born words fell,

Gently from her mouth,

In all but silent compassion.

 

Fell, but did not hit the floor.

Words spoken in love never do;

They are too precious,

As you are precious.

 

And so the new born words of your name,

Floated above the ground.

And as she looked upon them,

She saw her prayer for you.

 

They floated,

For a second only,

Before,

Rising,

 

High,

High,

High,

 

Carried by love,

To love itself;

Into the arms of a loving God,

Who smiled,

And softly,

Spoke your name.
