If The Soul Speaks

I nagged 
Because I loved
I fret
Because I hurt
I cried because I cared
I didn't want to let you go
Without trying
I didn't want to watch you live a life that ends in regretting

Don't worry my love I am done trying
My part is done
I won't ask you to try again
I won't ask you when?
I won't ask you where or how long
You said enough 
You just want to gratify yourself 
I just didn't want to listen
I wanted to believe and convince my self 
You loved and cared as much as I did
I will keep on living
At least knowing
Once I loved without limits
Once I cared as deep as I could 
Once I tried to save and guide

What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?

Matthew 16:26

Let Me

Let me love you like the sun loved the ocean,
Through a gleaming light and endless devotion.
I will come each morning to greet you with light
Getting the darkness out of your sight;
With a quiet beauty that speaks softly
Awakening your soul and warming your whole body.

Let me love you like the rain loved the soil,
Leaving no hard surface to your entire soul.
Taking you places you would never imagine,
Pouring out my love, soaking you with affection;
Wiping your troubles, quenching your thirst,
Giving you nutrients to lift your spirit.
Let me love you like the birds love the flowers,
Keeping you company for days and hours;
Greeting you each day with a sweet melody,
Singing you many songs that will make you happy.
I will take pleasure from the bloom of your heart,
The unseen beauty that is a work of art.
It is not only the blossom I am going after,
I want the seed in you that is buried under.

Let me love you like the moon loves the earth
Even when it is dim understands your worth
Knowing all your secrets you want to confide
Sharing all your dreams right by your side;
Helping you fall asleep through a peaceful light,
With intoxicated eyes, gazing at you all night.

"Many waters cannot quench Love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one's house for love, it would be utterly scorned."  Song of Solomon 8:7

The Purpose Driven Women

She made her bed next to the soft hearted,
gave up her comfort so they can be comforted.
The meek, the humble, the poor in spirit,
All became her friends whom she called blessed.

She said good bye to vanity and fine clothes,
Wrapped her body with love and kindness;
Wore the gloves of helping hands,
While putting the High heels of awesomeness,
She walked each day with a purpose,
To make this world a better place.

You can smell her scent from far away,
She wears a perfume called save one soul a day.
Though her body still craves the old ways,
Her soul desires to fulfill her purpose;
Where she finds warmth and happiness,
A heavenly peace that is endless.

"The purposes of a person's heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out"
Proverbs 20:5
