Love is...

I found God...inside of me...


I was looking for a man, but instead he found me

He whispered my name, i fell in shame and yet he did not shame me

He spoke of my pain

I cried

I blamed

He laid his hands on me

Told me to forgive thee

I tried but i could not muster the will to forgive my ownself

He grabbed me by the hand

We strolled through the land of my thoughts, my dreams, my experiences

And then he said

All of this is for you...

To be you...

To become you...

My child

My flower

I found God...inside of me

And not once did he disappoint me.

I loved the vulnerability. Let Him use you. You blessed me with that one.

Miz, I loved this piece. It brought so much in the way of peace and contentment and these were both gifts I needed to unwrap today!

I was going to suggest that you cross post this over at Christoph's Potent Poetry blog because it would fit right in there...and I see he left a comment above...hmmmmm...

Oh wow, at first I thought I was readng G. Yes, that's a compliment. But your voice shone through quite brightly, and that is the bigger compliment.

Peace and Love,

sweet. . . sometimes it takes us going through something really deep to realize that GOD never will disappoint us! he is not man, not made out of flesh and so we need to everyday know that he is the one that we must turn to; trust him and he will make all of our pain go away!
great poem!
