We are wired for intimacy.
The longings of our hearts are legitimate. We cannot deny the truth that all of us are desiring to be with someone one way or another. We long for approval, acceptance, forgiveness, faithfulness and love.
St. Augustine said 'Our hearts are restless unless it find their rest in God alone'.
True enough, our deep longings and desires are connected to what God wants for our life.

You are the reason of this yearning
This heart that has taken you captive
The longing won’t subside, can’t wait ‘til you come
And bring me to you forever
I have nothing but you in my mind
No one but you in my heart
The world outside is busy with its desires
But I look to you, my only desire
Look to me with favor
Look to me with compassion
Hear this voice of mine
Clamoring for the assurance of your smile
I searched for acceptance
But did not find it
Searched for answers
That did not come
Tried this and that
Experienced these and those
Realized there is no substitute
For genuine truth
The only thing that will satisfy
The only thing that matters
The only thing cared about
Is The only thing, no doubt
Greater than what I sense inside
Bigger than fleeting feelings
Is you eternal.
