I was thinking it's too bad you can't read it. My cousin's son read this poem that he wrote. It had a big impact at her memorial and made the JW's gasp, including Sharon's mother and her daughters in law, who are JW's. This son is out like us. It kind of sums things up, I think. But they would never read this one.
"Have You Seen God's Love?"
Mom, have you seen God's love today?
I was hoping to find it because it's especially hard today
It was here just a while ago
Mom, where has God's love gone?
I looked at the Kingdom Hall but they said I could not ask
I looked at Grandma's house where I was sure to find it
She said I could find it at the Kingdom Hall
I heard them tell of their own love
But, it's God's love I am looking for
I will know it when I see it
God's love is kind, never rude
God's love takes no offense and is not resentful
God's love does not remember our wrongs but is always ready to excuse
There is no end to it's trust and hope
God's love endures whatever comes
It never fails
Oh! - here it is!
I knew I would find it with you
You had it all the time
It was you who showed me God's love
You were kind and generous, never rude
You overlooked our errors and always excused us
Full of trust and hope, you never failed
Thank you for helping me find God's love
I knew you had it all the time.
I love you Mom
I will see you again when I get to where you have gone
God bless you
God bless us all.
