Your Love is Different

Your love is different, Jesus

Just a reminder

Your love is different, Jesus

 

My love is straight lines

squares and rectangles

 

Yours is flowing, sweeping

no sharp corners

no tight bends

 

Mine scrapes the bottom

of the barrel sometimes

 

Yours overflows like

the waters of Niagara

 

Mine is often mud-coloured

while yours wraps me

in rainbows

 

Mine is lots of short sentences

full stops and question marks

 

Yours is a symphony whose

music sings in my spirit

and draws me

to dance
