Poems by Eden
Why do I love you?
Is it because you died for me?
Is it because you love me?
Or you save me?
Or you do things for me?
What is a good reason to love a God?
Is it so He won’t smite you?
Send you to Hell?
This does not apply to me.
Because I have a God
Who is powerful yet sweet,
Who is terrible but good,
Who would die for me,
Even if I was the only one.
His love itself is unexplainable
Why would any being,
Love a creature who is so far beneath it
Who is dirty with sin
We do nothing for Him
Yet He didn’t want heaven without us.
This doesn’t make sense
Why do we love each other
I guess the concept of love is too much
For a feeble human mind to understand
A love so great that a God would send his son
His only son to die for dirty creatures
A love that’s not even close to reciprocated
But is given freely with grace
What kind of love is this?
I can’t wrap my mind around it
This love is so selfless so giving
My question is why? Why do I love you? Why do you love me?
I might never get why you love me
I can say that to turn from such an all-consuming love is foolish
Where am I going to get a love like this?
Certainly not from another, especially not from a human.
Best grab it while I can
And let the fire of your love change me
I know I will never be worth it
I just pray you to give me the strength
To walk in your ways
I pray that your love
Will be with me always.
