Sweet heart,
Don’t you know,
I love you more than ever.
Your pains tear me.
And open up my eyes,
To realize,
I’m just as lost as you are.

But sweet heart,
I’ll let you know,
You’re so much stronger than you know.
Than you give credit.
I see it in your words,
In your life.
Just look closer at yourself.

So lovely child,
Hear His words through a friend,
One who’s where you’re going,
Who’s been where you are,
And back again.
Far too much,
Many more than I’d of liked.

God loves His children dearly,
Shall we long to be as He is,
But never try?
I say try!
To live a life of love,
To follow in Christ’s walk,
For hasn’t He loved us?
And died before the Lord,
A pleasant sacrafice,
An offering to God.

Oh answer to His cry,
For no spot is there,
For those who claim thier life is His,
Then, clearly walk another way.
For not even a word of foolishness,
Is with-held its consequences.

As people come,
Bearing words in lack of meaning,
Think not of them acceptance,
-by this I mean the words-
But notice that God’s wrath is upon them,
Pray for them.
But in no means pledge partnership.

As darkness stole your sight,
God’s Light came quickly to your aid.
For who are we?
Are we not children of God’s Light?
Indeed we are!
Now show your righteousness in Christ.
-For it is obtained through Him-
And walk in truth showing goodness.
Find, oh child, what is pleasing to Christ!
Flee from darkness as you expose it.
For Light makes every shadow dissolve,
For Christ’s Light shall wake us,
From our dying rest.

Watch your ways,
Though we live in a time of evil,
Share when God gives you chance.
Be not fools but strive to understand.
Seek out the extent of God’s will,
-But do so through Christ.

For all thanks to God!
Now submit to one another in Christ.
God is graciously good!

So sweet heart,
Oh child of God,
Listen as I speak.
As of Ephesians.
-In my own words-
Find love and light.
The joy of the Most High.

Inspired by Ephesians 5

    Really great poem! I like how you use images and phrases from Ephesians in your own words! It reminded me a little of the song 40, by U2, which does the same about Psalm 40.
    Keep writing!

    But never try?
    I say try!

    That pretty much sums up the whole purpose and challenge of faith, doesn’t it?

    lovely poem!

  18. Lovely. It could be a song. Seriously find some music for it.

  19. Well written. I would agree that this seems more like a song than merely a poem, but it is very good.
