We Could Never Love Like Our Father - Poem by Lagaya Evans

Love can be as a lion
Fierce, demanding the respect of another
Love can be as a lamb
Gentle, as the hand of a mother

Love seems to run rampid
WIth no boundaries to contain
Love is as a creature
Ready to devour if not tamed

Love is as a guard
That stands at your prison door
Never to be free again
Never to be as before

Love cost nothing at all
Nothing money can buy
A lifetime of hard work
As you vowed till you die

Some don't understand the vastness
The power that word holds
A love we can't look in the eyes
His power we can't behold

Our God is love
And gave the power of
His mind is beyond our comprehesion
Or our ability to love

We could never love like our Lord
Yet, we should learn to strive
We are made in his image
He should be the love of our life

But when we have struggles
Love just can't hurt that much!
Offered to one unwilling
To give back just half as such

The love of a man and woman
Is only but a grain of sand to a beach
That's when we envelope God's love
From this lesson he will teach

Love don't hurt
Only what people do with it
Can't seem to let go and let God
I'll be the first to admit

With age you'll look back
On all the days when you were young
How could I have been so stupid?
My life had only begun

Don't put an age limit on God
Because we have no right to say at all
Who are you to question the Father
Only be there when he calls
