The Hearts' Chord
Today I saw a ray of sunshine,
casting a shadow of my life line.
Its faith now holding the end of the rope,
with love suspended by a thread of hope.
It was a young and splendid weave,
knit together with plans and dreams.
Dreams and plans unravel with time,
love alone is on the line.
Dreams like clouds keep circling the earth,
plans discarded are a drifting iceberg.
Don't know or understand why,
for only love is on the line.
People's lives end in a field of lost dreams,
planted monuments have replaced their plans.
For dreams like clouds just disappear,
and forgotten plans no longer held dear.
Will faith, hope, and love finally intertwine?
or the silent reaper behind me severs my line.
Love like a dirigible is vanishing from sight,
the zeppelin Hindenburg soaring last flight?
Time with the winds of doubt are in a race,
hearts chords weaken by the marathon pace.
Wondering if my life line will finally break,
sending love forever to its celestial grave.
When I was young I knelt to my knees,
for love on a hill called Mount Calvary.
It always takes faith I need to believe,
in someone superior then plans and dreams.
His word says He died for all mankind,
God’s perfect love for all on the line.
How much longer must I carry this cross?
Have I underestimated faith over my loss?
Save love now drive the nails thru my hands.
God's way to reveal love can I use his plan?
He loves the whole world me only one.
Can’t crucify true love it will never run.
God commissioned man to pen these words;
“Faith, hope, and love will forever endure.”
My love for you will never die,
with hope and faith a heavenly twine.
I know now and understand why,
my love for you was never on the line.
