God Grants… And Then

God grants a heart

And then permits a love.

But before it’s allowed to be,

It must be given up.

God grants a wish

And then a kiss is given.

But before it can be remembered,

It must never be lived.

God grants a man

And then woman has companionship.

But before there can be intimacy,

They can not even taste a lip.

God grants wisdom

And then love as a sweet reward.

But before it can be a paradise,

It has to be utterly destroyed.
