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 its depths, bringing it to the surface,
ladling it 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 aperture
through which Your light might shine.

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