Never Give Me Up

can you give up your Lover
and bury Him in the dirt
cover His sacred body with earth
watch as the daffodils usurp
the residence He occupied
under the sky

can you let go of your Lover
and shut the door unscathed
carve His name in a grave
see your strength fade away
under the willow trees
of goodbyes mortified
He’s gone

but He lingers in the healing winds
come back to me
say forever
again

I drift into the earthen ground
where gravity won’t know the sound
of the heartquakes

lying down

here with You now

be with me now

and show me how your Spirit dreams

the dirt beneath my skin and feet
is comforting
how can I leave
I need
to feel You breathe
hear You speak
like You once did
snow angels form in the desert earth
as clouds form a story where the Heavens
know the worth
of a King
but they nailed You
to a tree

I’ll always be waiting for You

come back to me

I Am here

echo
e c h o
echo

heart submerging into the tomb
where my Love resides
a familiar cry
into the sky

is it You

heart waking from the tomb
where my Love ignites
with one word

arise

It’s Me
My love

a grieving soul
unfolds into a butterfly
again

I can hear You
when they said You wouldn’t live again
I can feel You
though they said You wouldn’t rise again

my Love
You’re glistening

I’m here
I never left you
hear and see
I’m still the Lover
that you need in the starlight

I want to stay here
until twilight
into the morning light
let the dirt and dust
encloak me in Your love
and I am covered
by Your touch

My love
your fire for Me
is the rush
of My heart’s adrenaline
elevating again
into the Heavens where we begin
forever
together

could I give you up My lover
could I bury you in the ground
watch the devil prowl around
to hound the space where your name
is crowned with Mine
never will I incline
to let you be anything other than alive
nor let you be anyone else’s but Mine

never give Me up
I would die
to show you
My love

my Lord
You’re always enough

I’m coming back for you
My Bride
I can never let go of you
My lover
My light
and now I’ll never have to
I’ll never have to

I will never give You up
my King
my Lover
and I know I’ll never have to
I’ll never have to
forever it’s me and You

You will never give me up

“But Mary stood outside by the tomb weeping, and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. Then they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.”  John 20:11-13

“Set Me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD.”  Song of Solomon 8:6

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30
