The love of my life.
Honestly, I don’t know why,
I don’t know how
I didn’t realise or acknowledge it sooner.
Referring instead to college basketball,
which is one
of the great loves of my life;
yet its done nothing for me
and my feelings could change
as they have for the NFL and NBA.
My love for You will never change,
unless you count it growing stronger
each passing day.
I know Your love for me is unwavering,
the truest love I’ll ever know.
You’re my constant,
always to be relied upon,
never to let me down;
an ear that never fails to listen,
strong arms that cannot drop me
and a heart I know is genuine.
Your consistent character
means I always know where I stand.
Lies never come from your mouth,
empty words neither,
Your promises the sole ones that matter.
That’s why I’ve given You my heart,
it’s Yours to have
I know You won’t disrespect it,
only nurture it,
care for it;
take time to heal,
You not only have my heart,
but You have all of me,
wanting to devote my life to You,
prove I’m worthy;
because You are perfection,
that’s no exaggeration,
while I’m tarnished,
not even worthy to be in Your presence.
In spite of this,
You still want me there with You;
giving your precious time
showering me with love unconditional.
I cannot wait to spend
my eternity with You,
finally gazing on the face
of the ultimate love of my life,
who saved me through grace and mercy,
continuously forgave me
and filled the heart
that had broken into pieces.
