The Greatest Gift

IF of us two might only one be glad,
Pain I’d pursue, and struggle to be sad.
If of us two one only might be great,
Safely obscure I’d triumph in my fate.
O Soul more dear than mine! if of us two
One only might love God, it should be you.

A great life song with spiritual insight and lot of knowledge. Congrats on modern poem of the day.
I would agree with Adrian Flett, that thoughts expressed here are 'too pious to believe'!
More dear than mine! ! ! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
