I love you with a Godly love
The kind where there was once nothing between us
Until I breathed into the dust and you became mine
Time couldn’t keep count on what you meant to me
and everything was made in sync
So you could come into existence and find me

I love you with a Godly love
The one that watched you become the real you
Through all the darkness, abuse, and blood
I love you with a love that never gives up
Who sees your imperfections and stays true
So our connection could never be undone or made loose

I love you with a Godly love
Where words become poetry infused into one
Heartbeat becomes music when we touch
So much I can see heaven and earth in your eyes
And it’s hell when you don’t care to see the love in mine
Let me remind you of me

I love you with a Godly love
Not the kind you see around you so look up
Because when you leave, I don’t scream you weren’t enough
I don’t move on when the world says that you’re gone
I come to find you even if it means
I lose everything because

I love you with a Godly love
The kind where we walked in paradise
Until the lies stole you away from me
And you lived in slavery, which hurt me more than you
So I paid for your life with my own, entombed to rise
So you could freely know that I will never leave you alone

I love you with a Godly love
The kind you can’t really understand
But I do because I became like you
Which was all a part of the plan
Before I breathed my life into you
And you became man

I love you with a Godly love
The kind that leaves marks on my skin
That tell the story of my heart
That even when you were locked in the dark
I knocked and knocked until I became bloody
Because I was your light and I was your only

I love you with a Godly love
Even when other lovers come to your door
And you cry and say I don’t want to do it anymore
I understand because I know they are hurt too
Just like you, so let me heal the brokenness within you
And believe that I can because

I love you with a Godly love more beautiful than
The earth below and the sky above
More wild than the mountains or the storms that come
I love you deeper than any ocean or sea
And more wide than any galaxy
Brighter than the sun and stars
I love you before you were and just as you are
And if you’d actually looked to me, you’d see
I love you endlessly
So, I only have one question for you

I love you with a Godly love

But do you love me?
