At Those Dark Moments, Love Had Withdrawn


To magnify, to make the most august sacrifice complete
To close out the great grandeur, the most recited love story of all times
The Heavenly Father inflicted the greatest pain
punctuating the greatest sacrificial selfless Love
Divine Love at His fullest divine goodness,
The Father had withdrawn from His most Beloved Son
Agonized with pain and laden with sin burden,
On the Cross, He searched for one drop of consoling drink
which was simply enough to gloss light over his parched broken lips
to touch his forehead with simple token of comfort, taking away pain sting
Cling to his last breath, he mourned to hear his own soothing sound of comfort
And the mourning echoed his deepest love for me and you, for mankind
His mission was the mission of love which ended with his Death
For in death, Love had revealed all, lived all, spent all
Love has spent His last drop of loving,
Denying his own thirst to quench our longing
Now satisfy His thirst if you still have a human heart He once created
Only for love to live a life illustrated on that Cross
My sweet Love, my Lord, hung on the Cross
Which was erected on the hillside on that destined day by my own hands
Oh, Lord, my heart is broken, my Love, now take it for you only I now live
Lift me up high, my Love
Nail my heart, my soul, my being, my all to the Cross with you!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
