Are you in search of the perfect love,
That'll sweep you up like the wings of a dove?
You search the world over and you can't seem to find,
That perfect someone who'll give you the time?
Your hurting inside, you want someone there,
To hold you and love you, make you feel secure.
This love that you search for determined and bound,
Can be found up above, not here on the ground.
The people of "earth" cannot give what you need,
But our Lord & Savior gives it in deed.
For our Lord is so merciful, giving us much,
Healing broken hearts, with His gentle touch.
For you are HIS child been wandering and lost,
He loves you, forgives you, He's paid the cost.
He wants you to stop and look up to HIM,
For when HIS light shines the worlds' will grow dim.
For no-one in this world you see,
Could possibly love you more than HE.
For God is crying and hurting too,
He wants love from His children, THAT CHILD IS YOU!

Thanks to God for the inspiration

Our troubles are caused by so many things,
It's a typical annoyance that just living brings,
Many of our troubles we blame on fate,
Or saying yes too soon or no too late.

But when these problems bring you down,
Talk to the one who is always around,
Who listens with patience and answers with love,
And sends you strength from heaven above...

Yanno Dove.....I doubt anyone would believe this....'cept Suthern, cuz she knows me so well.....but my parents brought me up in a very caring, loving, spiritual home....I've never forgotten that, nor the faith they instilled in me....I'm silly, crude, lewd, even kinda nasty sometimes.....but it's only to envoke a smile here and there, and I truly think God likes us to smile....or laugh....There's not enough things left in this world to create laughter so ya gotta make it happen. I always admired the old time comedians.....They didn't have to use profanity or sex to get a laugh....That took a great deal of thought....Guess that's why I've always loved Jonathan Winters....he never grew up.....and never had to be dirty to be funny......Have a great day!

WhtDove: Beautiful poem... such very wise words woven well!

Toerag: To borrow from an old song "to know you is to love you." *G* And I love your poem, too. *S* As I've told you before, I think God has given you a gift... your kind heart gives smiles even when it's shedding tears.
