How much love

Do you feel That you could steal To feed your children Would you be ok If you had to say My kidney to a stranger To remove him from danger Could you keep Three jobs with no sleep To keep a roof over your heads Or give up your life To protect your wife Would you deliver that baby If there is a chance maybe You wouldn't survive the birth Do you have the will If you had to kill To save an innocent How much love would it take To lay down your life for someone else's sake Could you give up your only Son To save everyone

Timothy, oh my gosh, what a poem, could I do those things, I am not sure but I know when my mother was dying I would have given my life to save her. And when my baby was born dead, I asked God why, why not let me die instead so I guess love can make us do some amazing things, well done and a FAV for me ~

Thank you and God bless you. I lost an infant brother. I understand.
