All I wanted was someone to love me someone gentle and kind
All I wanted was someone to love but  that someone I did not find
But I was looking for human love I was looking for the love of a man
Instead of looking for someone filled with love... the love of the great I am
So much heartache so many tears
Over ever so many years
Till I came to realize I was looking in the wrong place
I should have surrendered myself to the Lord I should have sought his face
I should have given my life to him and allowed him to arrange
But I didn’t for many much pain could have been saved
We need to surrender and allow him to do..everything for our good
He knows best what is right for us and whether we shouldn’t or should
I wish now I hadn’t thought about self  and lived my life without him
I wish I had known how precious he was and had said Lord please come in
I wish I had known how much he loves me then I wouldn’t have searched high and low
I would just have fallen into his arms and accepted the love that he’s shown
Lord I’m so sorry that I ignored your calls when you said child just come to me
I am the one the one you need come child I’ll set you free
I will love you like never before you will never be lonely again
I am your Lord your Saviour your King I am your best friend
All I wanted was someone to love me someone gentle and kind
All I wanted was someone to love that someone I did find!!!

    Great poem with a wonderful twist. Who would have thought this would be a poem about God. I am searching for truth. Your poem has led me closer to it. Thank you. I know if God can heal you, he can maybe heal me as well. Success and peace, Lyn
