What It Takes

(c) 2005

 


What does it take to speak
    when you are speechless?
What does it take to smile
    amidst the storm?
What does it take to carry
    what you cannot bear?
Is it love or is it foolishness?
 
 
Who would die
    for someone insignificant?
Who would wander and look for a lost lamb
    like a crazy vagabond?
Who would heal the unworthy
    from brokenness?
Who would bring such good news
    to the ignorant?
Is it love or is it foolishness?
 
 
People think it is foolishness
People treat it with contempt and scorn
For a man beaten, tattered, and torn
To do these things not for a friend but a foe
For the latter to live against the flow…
   
 
What does it take to wait
    and not to lust?
What does it take to speak
    of the unspoken?
What does it take to touch
    the life of the unloved?
What does it take to write
    the unwritten?
Not foolishness, my friend,
    it is something greater
So vast, it makes me ponder…
What rules the Earth,
    and the heavens above?
Simple, friend, simple…
It is Love.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
   -1 John 4:8
