Symbols of Love (an edited re-post)

We choose red wine, sweet chocolate, a rose
Candle-light dinner, soft music, nice clothes
We choose things of comfort, delightful and new
 In our best efforts to say, ‘I love you’

He chose a crown made of thorns, not the rose
Some nails and a cross are the symbols He chose
Clad in His blood, pierced, suffering, He cried
“Father, forgive them,” then... He died



Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
