Where Dust Spills Its Grail...a poem on Love




Love bears all things, believes all things, and love will never fail
Though the reward God promised, flesh and blood cannot avail
But in this heart-and-foot-borne second-mile-worn humble price
Love bears all things, believes all things and suffers sacrifice

Love does not seek its own nor tally its shortfalls and such
But forgives a slew of discrepancies beneath its touch
Love; Mystery of Heaven satisfying sons of earth
Where giving is receiving and where death to self is birth

Love; who can understand it or explain with syllables
This simple-complex entity that vexes and fulfills?
Our comfort and our sorrow; God in us, dust spills its grail
…Love bears all things, believes all things and love will never fail

 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 1 John 4:16
