Love Bomb

“Sorry to unload on you like that,” he said

“I’m glad you did,” I said,

“So many times we go through life,

carrying burdens, situations

not knowing who we can share it with

but not quite able to bear the burdens ourselves.

We lose sleep, become stressed

because we feel all alone.

Yes, we talk to God and that is a great place to start,

but we still fear the judgement of others.

It’s not until we tell another human being

and they meet us with open hearts and minds

that we can begin to lay our burden down-

or, rather, finally have someone

to carry that burden along

til the carrying is done.”

 

People Are Watching

“I couldn’t do that, people are watching”

It’s exactly because people are watching that we must do it

Do what is light and love and true

For if we do not, if we are silent,

we silence the Holy Spirit inside us

the voice, our Jiminy Cricket,

that instructs on all that is pure and good and holy.

Do it so that people will see,

for their sake and for yours,

a taste of something good

 

The One, The Only You

I love you

the way you talk and the way you move

your curves and the work of your hands

I love that I am yours

and you are mine

and that we are in this thing together

You are more than at my side

You ARE my side

and that’s Biblical

My Eve, mother of all that is good

in me

I love you I love you I love you

My darling, the one the only you

Thank you for choosing me

as I have chosen you

today tomorrow and always

Yours
