Love As Strong As Death ~

When You spoke to me Lord

Your words… The pauses between

The breaths You took when forming them,

Built ramparts around my tender places.

I, made of glass, ran… Afraid of

Your diamonded fortress:

“Too strong” thought I, “He will crush me,

I shall die.”  And yet

Your Spirit whispered

Strength to my soul.

Slowly… The jewels You spoke

Beaded themselves around my heart;

They have made me Your treasured possession.

They pull me towards You…

Like great anchored weights

That won’t allow me to be tossed

Against the rocks… I’m tied fast

To Your harbor in the storm.

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Song of Solomon 8:6
