Challenge of love

Sometimes one feels insecure
Always asking questions
Not knowing what the future holds
Certain that he does not deserve such joy

One remembers heartless moments
Things left undone that should have been done
Words spoken carelessly
Reactions of fear instead of trust

The heart becomes afraid
Feeling unworthy to receive love
Knowing that the rule of love is difficult
So often the flesh falls short of the ideal

Yet seeing a smile the heart leaps
Those moments of fear seem answered
Reassurance comes with a few words
Fear only exists in one heart

The mind wonders how to learn the language of love
To conform thoughts and deeds to Love’s rule
Becoming more perfect
The heart must be prepared for heaven

    this reminds me of what is felt when one likes someone and they are ignored and then one day they are seen from across and room and smiled at :) Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

    It really is quite a challenge.. yet, when one does see it, it feels natural and so easy… quite magical!

    Loved how you have expressed the difficulty in getting to it, and later the hope after seeing it… it all flowed well in your poem..
