Refined Love

by Benjamin Graber  
12/08/2006 / Poetry

The flames are rising from my heart
All I have loved is burned away;
And as I see the ashes fly
I send above the tears I cry

I pray that somehow through the flames
The love that blazes bright tonight
Will be a witness to the ages
To those who gaze into its pages;

For I would rather feel the fire
And wear the scars of pain untold
Then stay in safety in the boat
Ill chase the stars and dare the moat;

Within the heat my joys complete,
For God is here, He knows my pain;
Im now a living sacrifice,
Refined through tears, this loves from Christ.

My greatest desire as a poet is to inspire the reader to follow Christ more closely, love more deeply, or experience joy more fully.
A showcase of my poetry can be viewed at, and my newest poems can be viewed at my blog at
