To Break a Man

No man was ever too hard for God’s Love to break
Only by everlasting wisdom does He decide in Himself
Who in His mercy He would draw to come see the Light
And who in judgment He forsakes to depths of darkness
In the mire of his sins and hardness of his heart
God would easily convert the wicked by His tender love
For never was any man too hard for our God to break

In Love

Like a freshly blooming daisy, you came and

Lit up my world

Smiling brightly and laughing heartily, with

Twinkling eyes

And talkative eyelashes and beautiful teeth.

 

Beautiful teeth

Were the reason I fell in love with a queen and

Your tender heart

Was the reason I stayed in love with a woman

Of great strength.

 

Tell me now that you fell in love with me too

As I did with you

That this love is why you are holding on to me

And will forever be.
