Love Stayed

(Part of my E100 series of poems)

John 11

Jesus loved
So He stayed
Allowed the grief
Allowed the pain

Why, oh Lord?
Why must this be?
That our lives
Are not pain free?

Where’s Your love
When Your hand
Does not restrain
Evil’s plans?

Love is here,
By my side
In Your love
I will abide
