English Poem–This, not that

Posted on Posted in English Poems

I have not come to you to get the things that I love; rather, to love you before other things could lead me astray.

I do not need you as a doctor who puts ointment on the wounds; rather, as a mother, who cares for the child lest it might get hurt.

I perhaps do not want your blessings, but you yourself, my Lord!
