You see my spirit separate from my behavior,
And you love my spirit,
And whether I do right or wrong,
You love me.
How amazing is your love,
That you can look beyond my behavior,
To see that is only a reflection,
Of my love for you.
How your love mirrors nothing in this world,
It breaks my heart,
For we are all broken,
And our love is only given conditionally.
Whether or not I have fame and fortune,
You see me as special.
Whether or not I have power and influence,
You see me as important.
Whether or not I have popularity and women,
You see that I have worth.
Whether or not I have mastery and achievements,
You see that I have value.
It touches each individual's world,
A tailor made journey,
To reveal the nature of our soul.
You afflict me because I am chosen,
You push me to seek your truth,
You pierce my heart with passionate love,
And you feel every emotion bestowed upon me.
So I give in,
I surrender to your will,
Take me each day I live,
An empty vessel for your great glory.
