Best Poem of Sophocles

Allow

Allow me to be the candle,
That holds high your flame of love.
The sudden quickness in your step,
After we dance the dance of love.
Let me be the garden,
From which your flowers grow.
Or the forces that simply listens,
As you tell what you know.
Allow me to be the tickle,
That bring forth your smile.
Let others gaze upon us,
And know of our style.
The things that cause you to fear,
Let me wash them away.
Allow me to be that
Which makes your day.

God's Love

Sometimes I feel as though God has abandon me.
But, God has Not!!
It is I who removed myself from His presence and
Wandered aimlessly into the dark.
God's Love always bring me back!!!
