A Lover's Quarrel

You know I had a lover's quarrel with God
As I sat there telling him  ~
I knew the fastest way to heaven
Was straight through hell
Though He did not see it that way 
Nope, not at all
God said you need to go down this one path
But as I sat out there on that enormous cypress tree
I thought and I listened and I thought some more 
What I was feeling now and what I should be feeling 
Where very two different things.
But as I said before ~
I had a lover's quarrel with God
But never once did he let go 
Of that unconditional love for me 
No ~ never once and for that I will always love God

    Even when we let go , God never will, nicely penned Debbie, its mans nature to wander, Thank God when we learn our lesson and God is waiting with open arms, blessings, Carl

    Love your dramatic verse, Debbie! Parts of your dialogue, fragments of your thoughts, and from the sum we feel your enrichment. It's amazing that God's love is always "unconditional".:) An inspiring verse, thank you for sharing. Hugs, Mikki

    the one constant in the universe, the one who cares and doesn't rest, to be loved by him, is to be blest, his creatures since creation, sometimes we are a pest, with patience he is waiting, our return to the nest... re: Debbie Duncan 'A lovers Quarrel' Don

    We curse him and subverse him and we think that we will die. And then just when we think that we have finally lost our soul. He reaches out with open arms to help us bear the toll.

    Did you know that the late, great Robert Frost said "I had a lover's quarrel with the world". Your poem reminds me of that quote! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    WOW! How did I miss this, I think it isn't a quarrel at all, just a lover's tiff sweet Debbie, your heart is on your sleeve for your God, I checked with poetry and they said, when God received this love note from you he rejoiced, sending you peaceful thoughts and a big hug, Vie.

    Rainbows and crosses help us with our losses. When blood boils and ends our toils, his kindness takes our hand. It's really all he ever asks of us to understand.
