God I Love You Because - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

it is not because of
the promise of heaven
i pour out my love to you
not because the priest
or that mom or dad
have told me to
or because of hell
i dont play the fear game
it would turn me bad
it is just that my IQ
tells me you, my dearest you
have been guiding me all the way
despite my ignorance, defiance,
in your eyes i must have been
what a rat is to me
your love, care and patience
with this little nerd has worked
sorry for my ignorance thus far
my heart is now afired with
the desire to get to you, know, love you
i have found my peace in you
i found that you are the peace in me
and that peace overflows
when i switch my heart to you
in times of need
it is nice to know that
you show your love through deeds
because that's all i need
some long to see you all the day
but i know you are closer to me
more than i would ever know
i live day by day in your grace
taking the wind as your affection - for me
the rain as your tears - for me - your slow evolving creature
the thunder as your warning for my wrongs
and all things, living or not as part of your manifestations
those that i am still ignorant of
i beg your pardon to let me know
