Eulogy for the Living

How many more ways can this be said?
You don’t have to carry this alone

You are radically loved and pursued

So much so that you don’t believe it

You can not accept that there is enough 

light to cover over all of your dark –

All of your wrong

There is love –

Enough love

To engulf you like a cleansing sea 

It’s briny salt sits in the wounds

It stings at first as the doctor stitches you

As the peroxide cleans it offends the dirt

In turn your heart is cleansed

Accept this love

That is the whisper that continually 

beckons

Accept this love

Accept this love

Accept this love 

It is infinite 

It is free

It is yours

“I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.” John 10:9 ESV
