My Love

My Love

A Poem by Marissa

Am I where I need to be?
Am I who you strive for me to be?
Lord, you're the only one who knows.
You told me to believe, so that's what I did.
I need you. You're all that was missing.
I let you slip from my mind-
but, you showed me the way back to you.
I don't have to fear.
I don't have to cry.
I just have to trust in you.
The things I want are no where- 
close to the things I need.
Lord, I need you.
I need your love.
I need your guidance.
When all else fails I'll-
always have you.
You're my light in the dark.
My headlights in the pouring rain.
You know I'm lost before I do.
You give me a hand when I fall.
Sometimes I wonder though-
Why would you believe in me?
Why do you love me so much?
I fail you daily- 
but, you don't change your mind towards me.
God, all I need is your love. 
You're my only strength at times. 
It's taken me so long-
to get here, but I'm here.
Lord, you've freed me- 
from so much agony.
I hope I'll one day- 
be able to believe in myself like you do.
All I am is thanks to you-
Lord, you've given me so much.
I wanna thank you for it all. 
Most importantly thanks for-
my angels here on earth.
Without that blessing I wouldn't-
know you like I do today.
You knew I needed them-
even when I didn't, you gave me a miracle.
You didn't give up on me like- 
I've asked you to so many times.
You stand by me like a root to a tree.
The world had me-
but, Lord, you got me back.
Please I hate to ask but-
don't let it have me again.
It's you that I want.
It's all just you!
Now, that I have you-
I don't ever want to lose you.
You're my armor in this war.
Once I decided where I wanted to be-
I gave my life to you.
Though I struggle everyday-
I know you're right here.
I won't lie though-
I still have fears.
I don't always trust you like I should.
But, I know that you still love me.
I try not to forget about you-
out in this crazy world.
Somehow, someway you are always-
giving me second chances I don't deserve.
You forgive me for my sins and-
you love me anyways.
You're my Lord.
You're my savior.
You're my everything.
So, I vow to you I won't give up.
You've given me every reason not too.
I want to be better than that.
And all because of you I know that I am.

Thank You!
A wonderful expression of faith. Bob Dylan said "Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody"

I did get distracted about half way through though. The work is very nice, but a little redundant and wordy.

The only suggestion I can give you is read it, and look for redundancies.

Okay, thanks!
God is the only real lover. He gave man a little of his brains, a little of his face and a little of his heart but still man went short of his glory.
Nice piece.

Oh well, in that case, it would be easier to read if broken up into stanzas. They don't have to be .. read more
A beautiful and hopeful poem. We need hope and faith to keep our heart and mind hopeful and content. I found no weakness in the poem. People who know true happiness. They know how to describe peace and happiness. Thank you for the excellent poetry.
