You’re special.

Otherwise I wouldn’t like you so much.

I can’t explain it,

But you are so cool.

You are so sweet.

You are so cute.

You are…you…

You’re special.

I appreciate that you don’t feel the need to talk all the time.

You appreciate silence.

You appreciate thinking.

You work hard.

You wish you could play harder :)

I wish we could hang out.

I wish we could just chill.

I wish we could take trips together,

And listen to music,

And just be

…together.

Doesn’t that sound nice?

How unfortunate that you’ve never even thought about this!

I think we could be friends.

I think we could be good friends.

I wish you thought the same…

You’re special.

I Cannot Tell

I have a copy of this poem without the author. If anyone knows who this is by, please let me know! I love it and I find it so beautiful :)

I cannot tell why He, whom angels worship,

Should set His love upon the sons of men,

Or why, as Shepherd, He should seek the wand’rers

To bring them back and they know not how or when.

But this I know, that He was born of Mary,

When Bethlehem’s manger was His only home,

And that he lived at Nazareth and laboured,

And so the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is come.

 

I cannot tell how silently he suffered,

As with His peace He graced this place of tears,

Or how His heart upon the Cross was broken,

The crown of pain to three and thirty years.

But this I know, He heals the broken-hearted,

And stays our sin, and calms our lurking fear,

And lifts the burden from the heavy laden

For yet the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is here.

 

I cannot tell how He will win the nations,

How He will claim His earthly heritage,

How satisfy the needs and aspirations

Of east and west, of sinner and of sage.

But this I know, all flesh shall see His glory,

And He shall reap the harvest He has sown,

And some glad day His sun shall shine in splendour

When He the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is known.

 

I cannot tell how all the lands shall worship,

When, at His bidding, every storm is stilled,

Or who can say how great the jubilation

When all the hearts of men with love are filled.

But this I know, the skies will thrill with rapture,

And myriad, myriad human voices sing,

And earth to heaven, and heaven to earth will answer:

At last the Saviour, Saviour of the world, is King.
