You Are Too Beautiful For Words...

Rating: 4.8
You are too beautiful for words,
which I try to capture in a song;
words just simply fail me,
I make them up as I go along.
You are the most important being in my life,
without Your truth, I cannot live;
I don't require much... to get by,
I only want to love and also, give.
Give my heart and soul to only You,
you know what to do, better that do I;
I used to work so hard to get ahead,
I used to wonder at it all and then ask why.
But You called to me and I was saved,
I gave my burdens to Your caring hands;
content to let You rule my days,
I'm better off, from where I stand.
You are too wonderful for empty words,
that fall so short of heaven's gate;
I put you first, above all else,
and feel secure about my future fate.

The commencing line is too beautiful for praise, and the entire poem a great inspiration. Thank you, dear poet, for sharing your thoughts so beautifully through this poem. As I continued going through the lines, I felt as if my thoughts were being expressed here. I commend Lorraine Colon too, for her nice comment.
