The Gift

Why did you give it to me?
I am completely undeserving.
I could never hope to repay you.

You loved me when I was unlovable.
You blessed me when I hurt others.
You claimed me as a prize when I was worthless.
You showed me mercy when I gave none.
You gave me peace when I disrupted it.
You loved me when I was unlovable.

Why?

My thanks is meaningless compared to the magnitude of your gift.
I can never repay you.

Thank you.

You are my strong melody.
You are my dancing rythm.
You are my perfect rhyme.
And I want to sing forever.
You're my beautiful, my sweet, sweet song.
I will sing again.

Wonderful sentiment. Might I suggest "on your knees" is a good place to start? This sounds like something I have said to my wife from time to time....she is refined where I am not. Certainly seems correct that two haves make a whole.

You were never those things. You just thought you were. She knew better.

I can understand why you would all assume that it was a person that I was referring to, but it's not, per se.

Well, let me know if I am right, but I thought of the Lord when I read this. Is that who you refer to? by the way good work.
