A Love Without End

What I delight in
Will help you know who I am
Watch closely and you will see
We’re like a mirror
A man’s face reflects his soul
Man’s actions tells the real truth
~
The two together
When they are walking as one
When their aim is love
Like a fresh drink of water
Will delight a thirsty soul
~
No one can deny
My life is muddied sometimes
My soul needs cleansing
I come confessing my sins
God’s always glad to see me
~
A daily cleansing
I do not take for granted
A love without end
Engaging head, heart and soul
A discipline I have found
~
I found gentleness given
By faith I receive this love
A presence that’s mystical
A certainty found
~
In solitude I have found
Three things I’ve experienced
After fifty years I write
Of life, love and hope
~
Silence has taught me
To watch for the sacred path
Rekindle the fire within
To speak words of life
~
Psalm one nineteen calls
To look closely within me
To see what brings me delight
Realigns my soul
It calls me to turn and see 
To think about what matters
~
The discipline of quiet
My daily invitation
To stop the noise and listen
To the voice of love
~
This I must practice
I do it because I must
To learn how to love my life
In all my weakness
To see others with mercy
To give as I’ve been given
