First Sonnet

 

 

(Iambic pentameter)

Another day is spent in HIS presence.

A joy to know all is as it should be.

No cares, for 'morrow, it is in HIS hands,

Lest I forget, HIS life is within me.

 

 

 

 

The love we share is not of this terrest.

A boundless stream of joy and forgiveness.

A gentle lover knows what I can take,

The bridegroom claims HIS wayward wife at last.

A dance eternal, glorious HIS name,

My LOVE, HE meets me, nothing is the same.

As time it wanes and fades beyond all time,

I know HIS LOVE perfectly completes mine.

 

 

HIS steps I follow, knowing HE will lead

me to HIS throne, behold no eye has seen!

WOW OH WOW...what a glorious picture of Messiah and HIS bride!!!

Well written and beautiful!!!

For men it is hard to comprehend what a woman feels when she is swept away by the bridegroom and I think harder for us to grasp the intimacy of it all. We are more like a beast.

Thank GOD for women like you to spell it out for us dummies. ROFLOL!!

Shalom
