    I have been noticing for a little while
    That you feel like you might be out of style
    As if you're absolutely invisible to the world
    As if you never know the joy of boy met girl

    But what if...

    What if it is just really not you season
    What if the Almighty has a real reason
    What if HE is still preparing her for you
    What if rushing makes you miss your due

    What if you step to quick and misstep
    What if you are not ready for her depth
    What if it is just not your appointed time
    What if your lack of patience is a crime

    What if the crime is stealing from your own fate
    What if there's a lesson to be learned in the wait
    What if you haven't get the right attitude yet
    What if you haven't had time to forgive and forget

    What if you haven't had time to heal life's wounds
    What if you haven't quite made all the rounds
    What if you baggage is to just to heavy right now
    What if you don't really know all there is to know

    What if your invisibility has a appointed purpose
    What if you allow this season to run its course
    What if you allow God to be God in this confusion
    What if you allow him to make the last decision

    So my brother as you feel invisible to the world
    Wondering when shall you met your special girl
    Know that HE had to shield you from sight
    So HE could make everything just right

    Thank you soooo much for this post poet. It really hit home for me and made my situation clear. Almost like God used you to send me a message he's been trying to tell me for so long. Thank you.

    You took a painful situation, when one feels unwanted and tired of waiting, and convinced us to look at the positive. Quite an uplifting write, wow...
