The standards for a Mate, to find.
Do we ever stop to think? of the things that we seek,
in love, and whom, we might give our lives to?
Is the standard too low , that we might again find,
the waste of love not returned, spurned, burned,
and left, bleeding, to die?
That one, we don't often allow,
for the pain reminds us ,
the loneliness too,
that to not have learned to draw some fine lines,
is to welcome heartache of a familiar kind.
But what of the fact that it's just as sad,
bad, nothing to be had, no ears to hear,
no patience to forgive,
a chess game ensuing, to satisfy good,
and an unwillingness, even to try.
If we go ahead, with our past hurts to fear,
and set our standards too high.
No man can attain to Jesus to be,
for that was one of a kind,
one of a time ,one of God,
and the only perfect and sublime
Where in between can we dare to tread,
when this amoral world breeds people
who can and are led, by their selfish ways,
and a standard that says
if it makes you feel good then do it,
without, consequence, or dread.
Do we dare ask what good, is,
to to a sociopaths mind.
Living to self, allows morals and conscious
us, to leave behind.
The only safe way for safety to find,
is to accept God and let
His Word be
the standard and must have that
allows us to be free.
Free of this world and all it's ways,
knowing eternity, numbers our days.
and in a mate if we but use
His gifts of the spirits
and Corinthians 13's love attributes,
to seek them and make them the goals
we must meet.
Then when the nature occasionally comes thru,
we know that our lover, knows and will do,
what they have. a heart to.
To ask your forgiveness, cause they offended you.
Give them the time, the slack if you will,
to come and ask, for yours, and His,
cause no one is perfect , but your gonna find,
a love in the Lord will ease your mind .
Soothe, your soul, fill your love tanks,
and if you, but give them, your forgiving grace,
The Lord Will take you both, to a whole new place
A place where He's, the final word,
and your free to love, free to seek bliss,
free to enjoy a passionate kiss,
to live in light, in grace sublime.
just don't expect them not to fall,
but expect them on Him to always call,
call them to repentance and rue their misstep,
but get up again.
and be your lover
your very best friend.
to love and adore you
until they die.
So donít set your standard
too low or too high
Just what do you seek? Art Proctor 04-21-06
