Love Is More - Poem by Kathryn Tyler King
Love is more than getting what I want.
Love is accepting someone unable to give.
Even when he doesn’t feel my gnawing pain,
even when he doesn’t talk to me or share.
It may get difficult and I cry to God often.
Why can’t he understand my physical need?
Love is patient and kind but for how long?
Love doesn’t seek revenge or its own way.
Help me Lord with this body that craves
for love and attention and closeness.
Is the problem deeper than I can know?
Do we need help from a professional?
Love is gentle and forgiving but why do I fear?
I’m afraid that his love for me will dwindle.
I know I’ll love him no matter what happens
though the physical side of us is missing.
He seems not to have any feelings of romance
nor a desire for me and I’m not bad looking.
Love does not laugh or make fun of wrongs.
Love doesn’t even see when it has been hurt.
Yet, my heart is sore and my body just aches
for a touch, for a hug and so much more.
I’ll keep praying that he recognize my need,
That he’ll love me as Jesus loves the church.
