My Journey to God

Love From Above

There is a yearning in our hearts
that will always remain,
for in this world
we cannot attain
the perfection of love
we long to feel,
and in our soul
we know it is real;
the pure love of God
from where we came.
We grasp and we struggle,
and give it a name…
success and fortune,
good health and fame.
We chase after this love
and too often in vain.
We must slow down.
God is here in this place.
He provides in good measure
through his intimate grace.
He abides in our heart.
It is there he will teach
of his personal love
that’s within our reach.
Once found we must share
this wonderful Love,
because others are yearning
for this Love From Above.
