An Unfailing Love

You were born out of love
You will die into love
You are loved every day just the same

With an unfailing love
With a pure perfect love
His treasure for you here to claim

A one binding love
An Intimate love
A love that is given for free

With a blessing of love
With a sharing to love
In every soul the same love to see

Love of Seeking

I love the light of morning
Through blessed sky of blue
A soaking of within
That births the soul anew

I love the flowers blooming
The colors speak to me
A miracle of birthing
Joy of the beauty

I love the souls you send me
Encounters of this day
Which allows Your love
In sharing of new ways

I love my Lord that’s seeking
Of ways that He pursues
A drawing to embrace
To show the love of you

The Only Word

My child, my beloved
How I love you dear
I love you completely
Right now, and right here

Yes but, I’m a sinner
Yes but, if you know
Take now all the “yes buts”
Throw them out the window

Cherish the Word love
Repeating nice and slow
Savoring, surrounding
Soaking in its’ flow

Love, love, love, love
How I love you so
Love, love, love, love
Grace that You bestow

Word of the beginning
Until the end is heard
Let there be no other
As loves’ the only word

My Beloved One

This truth to be known
Completely aware
You are loved truly
Right now, and right here

You are loved fully
Cherished, adored
With a perfect love
Couldn’t be loved more

Repeat in your soul
In your veins to flow
Becoming your flesh
Incarnation to know

Echoing His voice
Child, I love you
My beloved one
I’ll always love you

Love Becomes

Child of the innocence
Body of the need
Mother of unselfishness
Love becomes a seed

Message of a broken world
Of pride and fantasy
I’m the one that’s in control
Love becoming me

Lost within a valley dark
Difficult to cope
Desperate for a Savior
Love becomes a hope

Found within the Spirits breath
The Fathers outstretched hand
The Son of God born unto us
Love becomes a man

Call of greater purpose be
Of our cross to lift
Dying here unto ourselves
Love becomes a gift

Can You See My Love

Gaze into Your Presence
A question asked to me
Can you see My love?
I say, absolutely

Looking at my children
The question appears
Can you see My love?
In their innocence here

Gathering with friends
The question adrifts
Can you see my love?
In all of their gifts

Encounter of the homeless
The question once more
Can you see My love?
In the lonely and poor

Past my enemy
The question stops me
Can you see My love?
A practice to be

Your Love is Complete

Anywhere that I am
Can be of a prayer
In stilling the soul
The Spirit to hear

There is nothing to need
Hide from or fear
Your love is complete
Right now and right here

Everyone that I meet
Let me be aware
You dwell in their soul
And You love them dear

Connecting in you
In your love we share
Your binding of love
Is of everywhere

Memorial Day

I hope everybody
In this world today
Visits the soldiers
In their graves they lay

To pay our respects
Of their sacrifice, be
Who gave of their lives
For us to be free

To pray for the wounded
Who suffer this day
To stir in our soul
To help in some way

Think of their families
Of tears that won’t dry
The hole in their heart
Oh Lord, heal their “why?”

Commitment to love
All of us consort
May war small and large
Be our last resort

Song of Love

Sing to me a song of love
A grace to soul impart
A flowing gift of peace
Stirring in the heart

One found in the stillness
Of the dawning light
A gentle voice of silence
Connection of delight

Let soul sing along with You
With Word that You inspire
Binding sweet of lyric deep
One of souls’ desire

Carry now this tune to be
Move other souls to say
Share me this song of love
For us to sing this day

The First Love

Jesus is the first love
Your soul He pursues
Here’s what our Savior
Is saying to you

I loved you before
You could love anyone
Or even receive
Love from anyone

You’re fully accepted
I love you as you are
Let go of what’s been said
Come let me heal your scar

You’re born out of my love
My love breathed into you
You’re the incarnation
Of My love spoken true

In Me there’s no hatred
No resentment to be
I love you forever
You can always trust Me

(based on words from Henri Nouwen)
