Love is contagious

Come and save us

Love, don’t forsake us

We have abandoned you from time to time

But come to teach us


Love, we are apologetic

We are souls that are shipwrecked

Away from the safe deck

We have forgotten you

Amidst this world of high-tech


Love, we really miss you

We started out in the ocean blue

But the bright clouds quickly withdrew

And brought the hellish winds and storms

Love, come back into view

    Love is like a roller coaster at Disneyland. Full of twists and turns and full speed ups and downs.

  3. I really think this is beautiful and I read it as the cry from a broken world to the great and Almighty Healer. Am I correct?

      That is correct. It’s like a plea to God, we have been disobedient as a nation from time to time, be merciful on us! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy you enjoyed it. And by the way, I just wanted you to know, if you didn’t know, that I followed up to your email. Did you get it? ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hey Carly, I did, Iโ€™ll be honest my spring break has not been as carefree as I had hoped. I have it pinned up top to reply to as soon as I get the time to sit down and write back a composed and thoughtful response!
