Yearnings of Selfless Love


I Prolonged
To this misery of life-
I Accustomed myself-
To these daunting thoughts.
I underrated myself-
Despite all Your odds.
Thy heart in me-
Is torn asunder-
I Linger in the same deadness-
Though a lively spirit.
I want to emerge anew-
Shedding old skins-
I Want to move forth-
Into the new horizons.
I need courage-to
Foster my dynamism.
I yearn for Your love-
To endure my dead soul.
I long for your fond caress-
To drive me with happiness.
I yearn – I long – I yearn-
For Your Selfless-Love.
