He Sees My Heart

He sees my heart
The deepest part
Where my dark secret lies

He sees my heart
And all I hide
It fills tears in His eyes

He knows my frame
That I am weak
And so he gently waits

For me to ask Him
To come in
And clean all that he hates

I hear the knock
Upon my door
He’s on the other side

He won’t come in
By divine force
Love his hands have tied

I need to invite Him
To my home
And ask Him if He’ll stay

The Refiner of
This soiled heart
Loves to hear me pray

And so He comes
And so He enters
My heart is not the same

He has removed
All that allures
Given my heart His name!

    WOW! The ending is so subtle yet profound in love's sporty transition Eileen. Your victory is so stark, and seemingly unsatisfying. You have Hot psychology! Mmmmm.....J.A.B.

    Thanks for reading my older writes, Justin. This one is not about physical love...but the divine. It is about Christ and His need to be a refiner and purifier. He is a gentleman and won't force His way in, but comes only by invitation. Thanks for visiting me.

    He is so amazing and he will never abandon you. He is happy to except your invitation. Excellent testament to your faith.

    Thanks ever so much, Richard. His love is unconditional and eternal. It is something that keeps me for giving up hope!

    Dear Eileen, you have beautifully expressed the process of loving! No one can love someone truly for what s/he is, unless s/he knows the other person well. If s/he loves without knowing the person s/he loves then the person s/he wished the other person to be! Furthermore, we are unable to know someone if we do not know ourselves first! All this, of course you know, I just wanted to see if I have understood your EXCELLENT poem well! Thank you for sharing!

    I believe this comment was meant for my other poem...I cannot Change for You. This poem is about the love of Christ which is unchanging. Can we ever fully know someone? Can we ever fully know ourselves? I believe we sometimes THINK we know someone and find that we have misjudged them. It is a confusing world we live in, my dear...thanks for the post.

    Thanks, my dear Guru Jad. I often wonder...how we can be so untrue in all what we do when we have someone who longs to make us new. The eternal human struggle between what is right and wrong...Thanks for the visit!
