Almighty


How can a Man
Love me,
Unconditionally?

How can a Man
Love me,
When I don’t love him?

How can a Man
Love me,
Without limit?

How can a Man
Be faithful to me
In spite of my unfaithfulness?

How can a Man
Tell me he loves me
In my unfaithfulness?

What manner of Man
Would run after me
Even as I go astray?

What manner of Man
Will call to me
Even when I am so far away?

What manner of Man
Will stretch out his hand
To rescue me?

What manner of Man
Will forgive me no matter
How many times I wrong him?

Why would a Man
Want me despite
My filthy attire?

Why would a Man
Of high class come down
To my level just to be with me?

Why would a Man
Sacrifice all He has
Just for my happiness?

Why would a Man
Give up all He has
For my freedom?

Why would a Man
Endure my pain for my comfort
After what I have done?

Why would a Man
Pay a debt
He never owed?

God
So loves the universe
His passion is deeper than oceans

Higher than the heavens,
Reaching farther than the stars
In the sky

His amity has no bound,
No limit, no expiration date,
His love never grows sour

His affection is merciful
Full of compassion,
Grace, every good thing

So unfaithful
As I am,
He still is faithful

So ungrateful
Yet
He still provides

Going my own way
Yet He, my love, calls out to me
Takes my hand.

Your
Tenderness
Is so great.

Your embrace
Is so warm
And comforting.

Your voice
Is so sweet
And soothing.

You are The Almighty,
All wise, You are The Kingdom
Of the heavens and the earth

You are the One
Who gives life, causes death
And He who is able to do all things

Then
Which of the blessings
Of your God will you deny?

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
