Elusive Mate

You created me to fulfill him, to be his partner,
to encourage and support him.
I despaired when I couldn't find him.
"Is there no one for me?" I asked.
"I will be enough," You said. "Trust Me."
"Live for Me. Love Me as your mate."
A hard concept when I wanted someone with flesh,
with Your characteristics.
I stopped searching for him.
I relaxed, choosing to live a single life, cheerfully.
In time, I stopped longing for him.
I focused on You.
Then, You surprised me, with him, a man who trusts You,
a man who loves You, and me, unconditionally.
Thank You for this life lesson about attitude, focus, and trust.
It has served me well in other circumstances too.
