I might look at poverty in the eye,
Suffer lack with a hopeful sigh,
I may feel down and ready to cry,
But Lord let me love you without asking why!
I might taste ease even from birth,
See abundance and robust of health,
I may enjoy all the things I held,
But Lord let me love you more than wealth!
I might stumble and fall down,
Show disappointment with a frown,
I may feel no beauty and no crown,
But Lord let me love you all around!
I might have hidden painful past,
Things I regret, I wanted to brush,
I may feel small like dirty dusts,
But Lord let me love you with no buts!
I may have knowledge and skill,
Feel confident and do what I will,
I may accomplish something big deal,
But Lord let me love only you for real!
I may be certain of what I want,
Driven by ambition I always hunt,
I may gain success, nothing I can’t,
But Lord let me love your every “don’t”!
