To be in Love Like You

To Be in Love Like You

ďThere is no God up in the air

Nor devil, down in hell

There is no life in Christís to share

Such foolishness you tell

You say Godís love flows like a stream

That Jesus is His Son

That all who come, will Christ redeem

No matter what weíve done

Such rot; my friend, I canít believe

No God for me; would die

With such a tale you canít deceive

Itís all a bear faced lie

Where can I find this Lord of yours?

With holes; in hands and feet

The one from whomtrue love outpours

This man! Iíd love to meet

True love myself; Iíve never had

What life could be for me?

How can you say, although Iím bad

Heís come to give it free!

Iíd like to see and shake His hand

Iíll meet Him anywhere!

Perhaps Heíll help me understand

Why no-one seems to care

I need; some love, Iím all alone

I yearn for love thatís deep

Most every night still on my own

I cry myself to sleep

It sounds so good, the things you say

If only half! Is true

Iíd give my heart to Christ today

To be in love like you......

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.
