Love’s Freedom

I turned to Love and said, “I must be free.”
And Love said, “Surely. Take your liberty.”

I asked, “In truth? You set me free to roam?”
Then Love replied, “Just please remember home.”

And so I flew to north, south, east, and west.
And finally back to home I came to rest.

Then turned to Love and said, “You were so brave,
To let me try my wings. So much you gave.”

Love smiled and said, “Refusal to set you free
Would mean I loved — not you — but only me.”

    1. Thanks, Dennis. It is true, isn’t it? After I wrote this, I got to thinking about a friend of mine who says the way to know for sure that you really love someone enough to marry him is when you realize that his happiness is more important to you than your own.

  1. I really like this poem. It touches my heart. It reveals a little of how the Lord Jesus loves us. Very well said.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
