True Love Alone

True Love Alone

 

Have you ever had the feeling

Speaking to God above

Experience senses reeling

Reconsidering love

 

It's good to be with God as one

Jesus hand holding ours

The Father's will, being done

Practicing True Love's powers

 

Amazing, ripping asunder

Tearing one's thoughts apart

Causing oneself to wonder

What, was within one's heart

 

That, of our sisters, our brothers

Adoring husbands, wives

Our fathers and our mother

Only perfection, survives

 

Nothing, no one, can compare

With that, on Calvary's tree

Not here, there, nor anywhere

Christ gave, to set us free

 

While ignorance goes on and on

When will this world discern

The selflessness, of God's Son

When! oh when will we learn

 

Why do most love cast aside

Desiring lust to replace

Whist behind it's selfish disguise

Lost, is the state of grace

 

Only Gods Love, God's Love alone

Can set one's soul aflame

Can soften one's as hard as stone

In Jesus Christ's Holy name.....

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.
