Coffee for your Heart- You Meet Me

You Meet Me

By Susie Teramura


It happens every night,

Sometime shortly after

Teeth brushing,

And face washing,

A silly game,

She likes to play,

And to

Rally me into,

She calls it, “Cupcake,”


She is

The cupcake,

And I am

The baker,

And the chase begins,

With giggles and shouts,

We chase all over the house,

Ending with a capture,

And pretend icing,

And sprinkles,

And a time to bake,

Until finally,

She is covered

With kisses,

And tucked into bed,

Loved for the night.


But tonight I am tired,

And don’t want to play,

Distracted, weighed down,

But do my best anyway,

When it is over,

And her eyes close to sleep,

Puzzled, I think,

What is it?

About this game,

That is so

Important to her,

What was needed,

To end the day?


My mind spins,

And the list begins:

She needed

To be

Loved, just because,

To be pursed,

Chased after,

To be the object

Of my affection,

To have my eyes

Solely on her,

To see the joy

She brings me,

To know that

I want her,

And that she is


And loved by me.


And as I am thinking,

And listing,

I find myself

In the same place

Of need,

For these




And my heart turns

Towards You, my

Perfect Daddy,

I Ask You

To meet me,

And slowly

I begin to see,


You love me,

Just because,

You are pursuing me,

Chasing after me,

With all that you are,

And all that you have,

I am the object,

Of Your affection,

And Your eyes are

Fixed on me.

I bring You joy,

And I am what You want,

I am irresistible.

I will aways and forever

Be loved by You.


And as I let it sink

Peace comes,

Tiptoeing into

My heart

Gently settling in


And I am glad

That tomorrow

She will want to

Play “Cupcake”

Once again.


Zechariah 2:8

For this is what the Lord Almighty says: “After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you—for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye—



The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.


Isaiah 43:1


But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
