463. Lord I need you more


Lord, I need You more than You need me.

I love You more than You love me,

At least on the physical plane,

Or at least that is what my proud discovery is.

So Lord, don’t make a fool of Yourself

By cherishing unhealthy thoughts

That I do not care for You at all.

I do care for You, hundreds of times,

But what actually happens is this:

Sometimes my old friends,

Fear, doubt, insecurity and anxiety

Make me feel that they need me

More than I need You.

Therefore, my ever-sympathetic heart

Overflows to them with diamond-concern.

Alas, at that time I forget You,

I don’t love You and I even ignore You.

Lord, since I love You and need You

More than You love and need me,

I am bound to return to You

And to You alone, without fail.
