I have always loved you with an undying love;
You’ve responded only with laxity and apathy.
I have cared, pulling you back from the snare;
You’ve never showed gratitude in your attitude.
I have always encouraged you and nourished you;
You’ve responded by starving me of affection.
I have always given my best through every test;
You’ve turned away and burned in sordid lies.
I have always treasured you with happy pleasure;
You’ve taken me for granted, enchanted by self.
Now I am tired and weary, leery of giving more
For I am sore afflicted and conflicted in soul.
And what will you do now but to go on your way
Without one word to say? But is this the day
When I must sigh and forever say goodbye?
Or will God turn your heart of stone to flesh,
And make an altogether new beginning…

  1. A time will come not far from now
    When blinded vision will see clear
    All the mudslinging and brainwashing
    Will be washed away, no longer there

    A person who only loves and gives
    Does have a heavy cross to bear
    He is wronged, his love sullied
    Someday though love will be near

    Their souls are pure and pristine
    Their tampered minds can’t see
    Hang in there my, keep the faith
    The healing rains I pray now for thee!

    Despair not, my friend
    This is not the end
    They shall break out of the mesh
    They shall arise and start afresh

  2. Jonathan,

    “Fresh?” reads very deep and personal. It is like a letter written where the pen is dipped deep in a bleeding wounded heart. Yet, you are writing it with an open heart and a love that does not want to let go.

    Reading your words I can feel the pain of a broken heart. I am sorry you have to go through this, and experience what you are. How hard must it be for you.. how painful and what a perpetual nightmare must your soul and mind be drenched in..

    The Bondage-breaker can do immeasurably more than we can think or imagine. Stay in the boat of faith. Do not lose hope.

    Be blessed.

    1. Yes! And the bondage-breaker came early this morning, Dajena! He is faithful, and His steadfast love endures forever. Indeed, the joy of the Lord is my strength! Thank you once again for your insightful, inspired words of support and encouragement. They mean so much to me… And thank you especially for your prayers. Your prayers, and those of so many others, have been answered! Thank you! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. What a joy to read this answered prayer. Thank you for sharing my friend.

        May your day continue to bask in His renewed promises.
        🙂 🙂 🙂
