A Haiku - The Almost Forgotten Valentine

Updated on March 9, 2015

The same gift...every day, always.

Rich or poor, He asks the same gift from all.

Psalm 51:16-17

Other gifts won't do.

Our broken hearts we give Him.

Love eternal, true.

      i'm looking forward to the message behind this...the poll in which we need to vote...yes, at all times we need to acknowledge the loving presence of God...

      Kay: His love is not just waiting for us, it envelopes us as we speak.

      sue: doing better as whatever it was subsides and energy rises, make every day Valentine's Day, too.

      duffsmom: for a poem to be considered "Well done - and well said" is high praise indeed!

      Gypsy: the "greatest gift of all" which you mention, is in fact a gift we give ourselves from our broken hearts and contrite spirits. I know you agree, but we don't always think of it in that way.

      The gift of faith and belief in the Lord is the greatest gift of all.
