(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret including Bible verse Romans 3:21-22; “it’s how I cope to hope in guiltless loving today even when it burns’)
When you lose someone, you’re held to the fire.
The sear is slow, leaving 4th-degree burns.
Lose don’t always mean death. What was inspire
for you can burn down when regret returns.
When I lose someone, it’s usually me.
I get burned by them and incinerate.
Even with a small singe, I’m nobody.
Somebody else gets the exonerate.
“We are ‘not guilty’ by way of The Christ.”
Nothing’s burned away when we lose someone.
All burn scars are from the arsonous heist
when we took and burned what was God’s Loved One.
When we get burned bad, it just means we Loved.
Love’s the proof that God sent His Beloved.
