Love Has Set a Song

Your love has set a song
In the center of my heart. 
It’s a sweet tune that’s been 
With me from the start. 
A song of safety, song of peace, 
A gentle, calming, soft refrain. 
A song of faithfulness through 
Joy and through pain. 
You sang with tenderness, 
Sang to ease my childhood fears. 
You sang with all your heart 
Even when it brought you tears. 
You sang with confidence 
Though at times you sang alone. 
You kept singing ‘till 
Your song became my own. 
No chords of rising anger, 
No cacophony of fear. 
Just a gentle, patient theme 
Softly whispered, always near. 
I long to teach this to my child 
So that when his world runs wild 
I can set him free as you have done for me. 
Your love plays a melody 
That does not know noise or fear. 
Just this simple, ceaseless theme — 
“My love is here.”
