Would You?

If the woman of your youth
That you made to be your wife
Would leave for another love
Because of Me
Would You?
Still love Me?
If the children that you raised
From their birth
When they are older
Say that they hate you
Never to speak to you again
Because of Me
Would you?
Still love Me?
If everything you own
Even the clothes upon your back
Are gone
You are left to sleep in a sack
Because of Me
Would you?
Still love Me?
If at the age of forty
Pox covers your body
And the food you eat poisons
Because of Me
Would you?
Still love Me?
If you grow so weak
You can longer raise your arms
If there is no one
To care for you
Because of Me
Would You?
Still love Me?
Then my Lord
May I ask?
When the wife of my youth
Left for another love
If I
 Had curse Your Name
Would You?
Still love me?
When the children I
 Had raised from birth
Spoke: I hate you
To be the last words
I heard from them
If I
Had curse Your Name
Would You?
Still love me?
At the age of forty
When the pox covered
And the food did poison
My body
If I
Had curse Your Name
Would You?
Still Love me?
When all these things
You spoke had happened
When I had grown so weak
There was no one
Who was left who cared
If I
Had denied I ever knew You
If I was the only one
 Whoever sinned?
Would You?
Still have died for me?
Would You?
Still Love me?

 

I once more want to give a special thanks to a post that has inspired this poem:

  1. what a beautiful powerful poem. I was wiped away by this… Thank you James, for sharing it… Be blessed my friend and my brother.

  2. Planting Potatoes on said:

    very good…..such a glorious, sweet reminder of just how much Jesus loves us and that there is nothing in this world…not even our families…that can mean more!

    • I often need a reminder of His love, maybe that is why sometimes the pen does the writing and I just the holder of it. Blessing to you Mark.

      • Planting Potatoes on said:

        That is exactly why my blog isn’t as full as others…..I will not write unless I feel God is giving me the words! Blessings to you!

  3. Wow… This one brought tears to my eyes. So beautiful, James – as are you!

  4. Simply Profound! I love it! Thank You!

  5. love this James! totally deep and riveting
