Valentine

There is a Lover
Who didn’t just claim
He’d die for you-
He actually did.
There are arms
That can hold not just your body
But the very pieces of your soul together,
There are Words
That when spoken don’t just
Make your ears tingle
Or your stomah flutter
But can remind your broken heart
Where home really is
While holding the very fabric of reality in place.
Every lover
You will ever long for
Or encounter in this life
No matter how good the chemistry
Or how passionate or loyal
Will be less than what your heart
Was made for.
There is a Greater Lover
Your True Valentine
Who carries the fruits of love
That you’ve been hungering after
All along.
One day we will meet Him,
One day we will find bottomless joy
And endless satisfaction,
And on that Great Valentine’s Day
We will see for ourselves
That the greatest heights
Of erotic love that this world had to offer
Were mere mounds of dirt
In comparison to
The grand canyon of cosmic romance
That He has laid out for us.


I will betroth you to me forever;
    I will betroth you in righteousness and justice,
    in love and compassion.
Hosea 2:19
