Love comes first

Love comes first

Love overflowing;
love enough for everyone.

Jesus feeding the multitudes
loaves and fishes -

love enough for everyone,
plenty left over, and still yet more.

You showed me such a love once.
You filled my basket.  Overflowing.

I should have spent the rest of my life
hovering near that love undistracted,

plumbing the depths, bringing to the surface,
ladling out, breaking and sharing such a love

as You are, as You bring,
as You have given.

Love should come first
to become a feeder, a slaker of thirst,

to become an apeture
through which Your love might shine.

O child of God, Meher keeps you
as near to the flame as you can stand.
