Love Worth Dying For

In silence I seek you
In stillness
Where the breath of peace
Floats over the sea of glass
Where the steady ring of silence
Pierces my ear
And steadies my soul
I am found
For you sought me first
To teach me to believe the unfathomable
That you, the Holy One
Perfect and indescribably beautiful
Considered me worth dying for
That my affection, my companionship
You so jealously sought
As to drive you to buy me
With your very life's blood
To endure rejection
And the curse of hell itself
In the hope that I would choose to accept you
In the burning desire that I would let you
Come close enough for me to feel
The depth and glory of your passion for me

Stephen Pursell, 12/98
