"The Cost"

“The cost”

To know such love so raw sublime, I’d stop the very hands of time
To breathe this air so thick so rare, one must expose ones heart, 
must risk it all might die must fall, no safe place to start. 
The naked soul none else can know so defenseless in this world, 
Spurred on by faith in love, it’s grace only then life's truth unfurled.
No easy way with heart one pays, cost all you have and more
You just know deep in your soul true treasures are in store
There’s no reserve and none deserve to touch this place divine
free gift of God so seldom trod this road I walk is mine.
