Enlarge my cup

Acquainted with existence where waiting-
hoping to die is the best part
of the day, I was blessed by your touch.

My smile now says that waiting to die
has taken on a whole
new meaning.

I will never go back to
ignoring the stench of my
death permeated
arguable subsistence.

I ask for more, but
this tiny thimble I have equipped
myself with is inadequate

Lord let me not limit
your magnitude.
I do not want only what is necessary.

Of you my Savior,
I want all that is humanly possible
and more; pour into me
Your love.

As I attempt to achieve
greater intimacy with you, I have
only one request my Lordů
enlarge my cup.

This is a very interesting write, definitely a unique color in your one of many different poems in your jelly beans, blue perhaps?

once i wanted to die from all the pain on this planet. now god finally touch me with his grace, i fell in love for the first time in 58 year. but it is so much better with his grace, and knowing i am loved i now want to live and help others to feel what i feel yet only earlier in life than when your 60 i was a slow learner, but god tought me well

My spirit will rise
above the sea~
There will be no drowning
of my soul or me~
