All Humans Need Apply
Written by Brian R. Gehrlein
Love is patient love is kind
If asked to wait I would not mind
It does not envy does not boast
Then Green’s no color that I’ll host
It is not proud it is not rude
Though pride may creep I’ll keep it glued
Love is always other seeking
I’ll be the patchwork for your “leaking”
Love cannot be easy upset
I’ll do my best, if mad, I’ll jet!
No record of wrongs should ever be kept
My pages are blank, my memory swept!
Your love should not in evil delight
Don’t ask again its evil I’ll fight!
Love should always rejoice in truth
My joy is clear and pure as youth
And if you love you will protect
Though waves may crash this ship won’t wreck
Your love, our love must always trust
You’re right by that I know it must
If love’s all here but without hope?
I’m sure, as you, the love won’t cope!
Perseverance is love’s aim
Like lengthy walks or steady flame!
But most important that you know
I’ve got no place I need to go
This love I want can never fail
My love it won’t I trust the Nail!
Christ’s walk, is now my guide, my rule
Without His light, to live’s a fool!
I see the questions are but done
May we, in hand, begin the run?
We may, I see your words are true
But time will tell and actions too
You say you are the one for me
So, if you love me set me free!
Simple, cute, true... What else do we want?
This is who I am...the hopeless romantic... at least I'm trying...
This poem is like banana pancakes on a rainy day with your best friend and a little bit like Dr. Seuss chillin out with 1 Corinthians 13!
