Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

This poem was inspired by a fellow blogger who posted their villanelle with detailed instructions on the process. Good samples, along with some impressive general poems reside there.  I have a lot to learn about more formal poetry styles, and I’m learning from so many wonderful blogs.  Thanks “Cubby” – link to blog:  http://reowr.wordpress.com/

 

I don’t want to know life without You

You are light and hope in darkness

Your love I will forever pursue

 

It has always been me who withdrew

Yet You loved me still despite this

I don’t want to know life without You

 

I wish that everybody knew

Your shared gifts of love and solace

Your love I will forever pursue

 

The shackles of past pains You undo

Freedom is known in Your promise

I don’t want to know life without You

 

I believe that what You say is true

And Your strength I wish to harness

Your love I will forever pursue

 

I trust that You will see me through

My heart You constantly renew

I don’t want to know life without You

Your love I will forever pursue
