Nothing Without Love

Who am I really?
It's hard to know
I wish I knew
But sometimes I'm glad I dont :)

I longed for love
I searched for it for so long

But the laws of earth dictate
That when the love of earth becomes so real
It's impossible to feel God's love
I cant
Feel it
In the lonely midnight hours

I exchanged the love of infinite
for the love of ending
and small things

I thought they were happiness
I guess I thought wrong

Like a child mucking around in a gutter
Happy to be there for always

But I had to let go of what meant something to me
to grasp what really matters

Who am I?

I am just a girl, nothing more
I cant trust my flighty heart

Longing to be loved, wishing to be captivating
enough to be pursued, chased, captured and covered with love
But I can't live the life of the hunted
and I cant chase shadow dreams that will only forever haunt me

Love beyond this world, and love beyond degree
Loved more then I could ever love
Only for that, will I be true

All else fades away
What remains is not who I am,
But what I live for

The best thing about me
Is you

I live
I breathe

For You

The love of earth can be beautiful, but only if you recognize it as just a gift from God -not God himself. To put all value into earth will let you down. In doing so we create an idol destined to fail.
