Loving God

So many days
an empty space
lingers in the place
marked "love for You."

Where do they go,
these fickle aches
of longing, love
and need of you?

"Choose," you said,
to give to me
your love
in actions real.

Do not rely
on feelings, fading --
waiting for Everests
to appear.

DO love,
attentive and active,

It can not be passive--
"Love the Lord
your God
with all your heart."

But asks,
I must ACT
when I don't feel.
