WHY O' LORD: POEM BY MARY VARGHESE


POEM: WHY O LORD...BY MARY VARGHESE



WHY, O LORD

By Mary Varghese

(Picture of God’s Yearning for man; man’s response by Prophet Jeremiah)
Why, O Lord………………………
You want me back again?
You keep calling me to you?
Even though, I have
Been ignoring you
And gone too often………..
Too long…….too far……
Still,
Somehow, you never give up on me!

Though at times
My vision is blurring to void
You keep picking me up and
Steady my walk with you.
Your kindness
Makes my mind swirl
Stabbing my empty conscience!

Yet,
When I feel out and lost
I see you smiling,
Stretching your hand to me
Calling, asking, pleading me
Back to your heart.

Cannot fathom the depth of Your love
Cant bear it any longer!
Your love is beyond me
Beyond what I can give you.
So, now I come back, tired and weary
Broken and bruised as before
And empty as you know………………

Maybe this time
My heart will catch a glimpse
Of Your heart for me
And know that You love me
Because You are Love!

May this knowledge
Empower me……………
To lose myself forever in You
And love the way You do.
