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
