When I was small I loved You little
then my soul You began to whittle
thru growth my spirit oft felt brittle
I would repent ... pray for acquittal

each minute I found I loved You more
interceding was never a chore
upon my knees deep within my core
I hoped for Your celestial rapport

as I spiritually matured
my soul was safe from satan's detour
I stretched toward You who reassured
that forever with You I had procured

in my aging sage wisdom was sewn
soul was a temple for You alone
in loving You, life was a steppingstone
I took Your hand, now see Your Throne.

Contest:  Prompt: Listen to the song and be inspired to write an inspirational poem.

(I wrote this as if I had finally arrived into Heaven because I loved Him above all things first and foremost, loving neighbor as self, having repented of my sin and was blessed with His Kingdom at last)   The beautiful song so inspired me.
