love we must


Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2 (KJV)

Who do we love?
Why must it be?
That we love at all
Affectionate we.

Those things that
Attract our thought,
Worldly values
Can be bought.

But, wherefore does,
This affection brings?
Shallow hands grasp
Empty things.

Ponder this:
Look at perspective high
To seek out godly
Things surely nigh.

For the nuthatches sing
And the rocks shall cry
Capturing distracted thought
That shall surely die.

As God beckons
He calls our name
Heed His ethereal
Eternal plane.

And give yourself
All manner be
To the things of heaven
Faithful eyes see.

And God with
Reassuring eyes
Our hands reaching out passed
Horizon lost, to endless skies.

Yes love we must
Affectionate few.
A love in trust
Godly hearts true.
