My Lord and me

My Lord and me

A Poem by Azure Montessa (Blue)
"

a conversation with my Lord

"



Depart from me for I am defiled
Condemned, sinner, a prodigal child
With guilt tormenting my inmost conscience
I should be deprived of Your holy presence.

My most beloved child, please stay
Let not your fears drive me farther away
It's been a long time since you called me friend
Do you have a moment with me to spend?

Why, oh Lord? I don't understand
All this time You have withheld Your hand
Where's Your glory and Your celestial host
Especially just when I needed them most?

I was, I am, and I will always be
Your God, your love--all yours for eternity
I've always been with you every second of your life
In joy and in sorrow, especially in strife.

But why does it seem like I was always alone
Despite all the prayers I had uttered and known?
I lived my days dying, I was consoled in grief
My faith, once strong, turned to hateful disbelief.

I know, My child, what you have been through
And it's never in My nature to just abandon you
Your eyes failed to see, your mind failed to know
All the graces that I never missed to show.

.
.
.
.

Lord, I am sorry for my careless neglect
My sins stem from my refusal to reflect
I was wrong, please forgive the faith I lack
If I repent, will You still accept me back?

Child, there is one thing that you need to learn
My perfect love is not at all yours to earn
But to accept from My heart's overflowing bounty
I desire not that you again depart from me.

In your flock I was once a stray sheep
But now, my Lord, I am Yours to keep
Comfort me with your song and may it always be heard
That wolves may flee knowing I'm with my Shepherd.

You can only hear me without the world's noise
For I speak in silence, I am your heart's voice
Stay with me, and grieve me not with your loss
But if you do, find your way back to the cross.

A wonderful and touching expression of your faith, Arzel! And I enjoyed how you wrote it as a dialogue between you and Jesus, rather than just from one side or the other. In fact, I can almost imagine that He would express words this way, somehow (or at least in communicating with you).

Sterling writing! You, Azure, are precious beyond words in His sight. Ask Him how He sees you, and when you are not expecting it, He will show you. You will be surprised how much He, Our Lord and Savior, delights in you!
I thank you for this poem. It is beautifully, true.

I don't know why I felt for a moment that I was having a conversation with Him? I have immense respect for the faith the devotees of the Lord are armed with. Thank You for this poem.

This is incredible, throughly heart-felt since I also am a man of faith.
