Michael E. Chaplin- Three Poems


Oh violent bloody death
Emblem of the grace
Given to those who
Are chosen to embrace
All we hold in hand
His own divinity
Fully god, fully man
Who died to set us free

The Shape of Love

I saw the shape of love
A gentle helping hand
When I had fallen down
Strength to help me stand
I saw the shape of love
Two arms to hold me tight
When I felt all alone
And frightened by the night
I saw the shape of love
A smile on a face
When sadness battered me
A needed touch of grace
I saw the shape of love
It looked a lot like you
I saw the shape of love
It looked a lot like you
