you showed me love, even when I was not at my best.
you loved me, even when I did not love myself.
thank you for giving me life, and loving me.
i will try to love others like you loved and still love me,
a love that nurtures even those that are lost.
a love that guided me home to the seat of my own heart.
Where have you been?
Oh, you were with me all along.
Sometimes You are so close that
I cannot see you.
Beloved, I am weak and wary.
I want to run away from my existence,
Your love seems so far away.
Then like a warm blanket,
Your presence folds around me,
holding me still till I find find center
Passions burns out,
but Your love is an
trusting in Your love,
even when I want to run away.
help me to run towards,
to be held in Your warmth.
I want to just give up,
yet You call me to love.
My heart melts for You.
Form me again in Your love and Way.
Love folds into me like waves of the sea.
Your love is like the ocean,
fathomless and deep.
I want to be a devoted lover of Your depths,
like Jacque Cousteau, diving deeper in the
Ocean of Your love.
I shed dead weights that drag me down,
and find life giving air and freedom in
being loved and loving You.
I know I haven’t been faithful,
I am easily distracted by earthly clamors.
I am trying to follow Your will and Your way, the Way of Love.
But I am too dense, and sometimes I don’t understand.
Please make Your way clear for me,
and keep it simple. I need You to say
“Hey kid, wrong way, this way!” Thanks.
Your Beloved Child.
