Untitled #28

Maybe I write (*) to mark the time –

Placing sign posts on the path that I tread

Maybe I write (*) because I know it’d probably put a smile on your face –

And that puts one on mine too

Maybe I write (*) that I may savour the gladness that my heart feels –

Sometimes, the right words are just enough

That is perhaps the answer to an unanswered question

It’s only right that you pointed it out to me ๐Ÿ™‚


(*) – undefined words


Have a wonderful week!

    I remember reading this somewhere, in a book by John Piper, I can’t remember which one. The quote, I mean. The preceeding poem is… I don’t have the words. It’s beautiful, saying the least ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really? Hmmm. I came across it while reading an article on Desiringgod. Thank you for reading and commenting :).

    Sweet… I suppose that we do write for ourselves and for others.

    I thought about that quote carefully and it made so much sense. Praising what we enjoy does complete our enjoyment, it gives us a delightful closure of sorts. ๐Ÿ˜€
