The fight of self-love
I lose sight of who I am,
and a battle is never won,
Fighting against myself,
I lose sight of who You are,
and I lose a battle,
that I never even started.
Fighting against You,
I lose sight of everything,
for everything is within You,
and You are within everything.
When the battle ends,
all I have left is love,
for it is within love,
where I find myself.
You know how much I love You
How can I describe my feelings?
How can I describe the contents of my heart?
When I look at You all logics fade,
and my heart pounds like that of an antelope,
who only just escaped a hungry lion.
The world disappears from my sight,
for my eyes can only perceive You –
nothing else matters to me but You.
If only You would know how much I love You!
My heart languishes for You,
in the brief moments when You are not with me,
I cannot exist without You by my side.
Still I know that I am one of many,
still I understand that I have to know my place.
But when You ask me,
if I love You more than others?
Then yes Lord, You know how much I do,
You know how much I love You!
