My Love Letter to you - Poem
Get an Audio Bible
I sent my messengers
but no one would be able to express how much I loved you
so I wrote a love letter to you
long before you were born
many tried to stop it from reaching you
but my love was stronger than their hate
though they banned it and burned it
I made sure I kept a copy just for you, especially for you.
I was so glad when you first got it,
my chest thumped in anticipation,
as your eye twinkled in delight,
and I was so excited that at last you would understand
just how much I love you…
like wine, my love for you bettered by the day,
and I wish you knew how it hurt my heart,
that you did not reciprocate my love,
for even though I loved you unconditionally
your love for me grew colder each day
for you threw on that fire of our love
the waters of many cares of life
I dint need you to read the whole of it,
at least not at once….
all I wished is that you could read a verse every day,
how I wished you would put it under your pillow,
to read it through the night watches,
how I wish you would carry it in your bag,
to read it during your coffee break,
or when you had to stand in a queue.
I envy the way you love your cell phone,
it is always in your hand- even when driving
you never switch it off- even in church,
and you have to rush home to get it if you forgot it,
I envy the way you scroll it when you are bored,
and sometimes I wish,
that you would treat my letter the same
Sunday is too far for me to wait,
and service is too short,
for me to explain how much I love you.
And besides, you will be too preoccupied,
with the music, the sermon, the friends…
and even by the cell phone
so would you please dust your bible,
and put within reach,
read it moment by moment,
let me show you how much I care.
This is just a reminder
that what I wrote to you in my letter,
came from the very reins of my heart.
