A Proposal - Poem by Terry Dawson

Know this my love
Your Lord above
Gave you your strength to use
And though you may
For guidance pray
Your path is yours to choose
And trust your heart
True course to chart
Do not Will and God confuse

Who more than me
My weakness sees
I need His word as guide
For I am frail
And fear to fail
Without God at my side
My fickle will
Uncertain still...
These things I do confide.

Now let me speak
She is not weak
Who feels temptation surging
Yet does not bend
For she transcends
The lure of that call's urging
And strongly goes
Among such foes
Victorious emerging!

The strength you see
Comes not from me
But from my God above.
You poor lost troll
Your questing soul
Knows not the way of dove
For you don't see
What's clear to me:
The heart of God is love!

Now hear you me
While that may be
There's more than that to you!
The fact endures
Free will is yours
And you must use it true.
Sweet girl of grace
Will you make space
Within your heart for two?
