Oh, dear! Sorry I forgot about this!

This week’s is one that I wrote more recently.  It’s a little more personal to me than most of the other poems I have written.

As usual, enjoy, critique and feel free to post any poems you’ve written recently.

 

My Heart For You

I’m struggling with longing thoughts inside
I’m burning with a yearning strong. I can’t hide
That cravings are consuming all of my heart
My love for You’s beginning to depart

But You’re the One Who won my heart that day
And You’re the Flame that burned me all away
My heart needs to hungering after the Son
These lustful desires inside I must shun

I somehow lost sight of the purest,truest love
I’m consumed with the cravings I’m dreaming of
It’s time to return home to Him Who Loves my soul
Retreat from all the pretty things, they have stole
My heart away from You.

Your throne within my soul will no one seize
Your love always awakens my heart like a breeze
Your mercy and compassion awe me still
Your hands have never let go. They never will

And You’re the One Who won my heart that day
And You’re the Flame that burned me all away
I must in His hands leave all these things and run
Into His ever open arms of pardon

I must regain sight of the purest,truest love
I’m consumed with the cravings I’m dreaming of
It’s time to return home to Him Who Loves my soul
Retreat from all the pretty things. This my goal
My heart again for You.

You know what’s in my heart better than I
You know all my desires, not one can slip by
You know what is the best for me. You know.
The gifts that you have given me overflow
These things are still consuming my pining
But I’ll just have to wait for Your timing

Psalm 119:11
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
