A Sonnet to His Love

His love for me is more than I can tell,
It’s magnitude is greater than my heart:
Like stars that shine their lights through the Earth’s cell,
His love is pure and truly from the start.
Just like a mother’s love for her first child,
His affection is true and filled with grace.
His love is ravenous and very wild,
Just like a lion’s pride on a great chase.
As kind and gentle fawn dotes on her doe,
His love does not condemn but it forgives.
As deep as ocean wat’rs He loves me so,
It’s higher than the skies-- the love He gives.
With that I must then say this all is true,
Eternal life He gives to me and you.
