writers island prompt

second chance

you give
so freely
of your love,
and get nothing
in return.

you forgive
the many sins
i've committed--
with love,
and grace,
and truth.

i deserve
so little,
and get
so much--
strength
and hope.
your love
is not conditional.

your heart
completes mine.
together, we
will make it,
through, this
life-- together.

it certainly is "made in heaven", as all relationships can be if we just let them.
