True Love II

utterly broken at His feet...completely at His mercy
no question of my guilt
witnesses abound...
Tensed against the inevitable onslaught of stones
eternity elapses
as I wait.....
One by one
He takes them on,
staring them down,
daring my accusers to lay a hand on His beloved...
In that look their own stone worthy sins
surface next to mine
my death sentence is suspended,
His is sealed
there is silence
The only sound that of footsteps
fading into the distance
There is You
and  there is me
Breath bated, body braced,
I await judgement
but once again
and again
and again
I find Mercy
"I have loved you with an everlasting love"
-Jeremiah 31:3
