True Love (2)

� � � True Love (2)

Though love�s beginning is divine

Its spring is Heaven�s shore

We guzzle it, like cheap sweet wine

And search the world for more

More beautiful, than eyes can see

Sweeter than honey dew

It comes to all completely free

Yet nurtured but by few

Beautiful, sweet, awesome, sublime

Some treat it as a tool

Others may savour for a while

Then squander as a fool

However much for love we thirst

How much we�ve lost and won

The living God deserves it first

With Christ His loving Son

It can�t be realized in haste

Or meant to flaunt or play

Nor should it be as common waste

Once used and thrown away

The Lamb of God revealed love�s worth

Through all He had to give

Enduring death, to show on earth

That man through love may live

God�s selfless love is still to see

Christ�s arms are open wide

Calling to set the sinner free

Bidding us all inside����

Till through it�s fruit the world takes wing

Until it comes to stay

Let love become the song we sing

Life�s chosen dance each day.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
