12/23 Limericks: Knowing Love


It’s easy to love unaware
Pretending the darkness ain’t there
To trust what we feel
Convinced that it’s real
Til circumstance lays it bare

For trust’s an ephemeral thing
When it breaks, hearts end up in a sling
When you hurt the most
I failed in my boast
And burned up our covenant ring

The cross gives to love a new scope
Where true seeing births a new hope
When shown to the place
We most need love’s grace
Ties knots with unbreakable rope
