Do You Know Me...

My newest scrapbook page...on the side on the blue cut outs is something I wrote:

Do you know me?
I know you...

I don't know what you look like..
I don't know your name..
I don't know how it feels to hold you,
But I know you.

I know my heart beats for you.
I know my soul yearns for you.
I know my body feels you growing,
But do you know me?

When it is quiet..
Do you feel my heart beat?
When the wind is still...
Do you hear me cry for you?
When you are alone.....
Do you feel my arms around you?
When you sleep..
Do you know I am praying for you?

Do you know me?
I know you.

When you first feel me wrap my arms around you
I wonder....
Will you know me?
I know you.

You are an AWESOME scrapbooker. I need to get to work on a lifebook, but haven't found the motivation just yet. Maybe if we ever get a referral, I will.
