16 You Always Have An Answer

When I say:

I think God visited me in a dream last night.

You say: So what was it you ate for dinner?


When I say:

I think that God may have a perfect love for you and me.

You say: Wishful thinking.


When I say:

My grandfather spoke to me from heaven.

You say: That was your brain chemistry talking.


And when I say:

Maybe, just maybe, we’ll have life eternal.

You say: Where’s your evidence?


I’ve heard your answers for so long now

I think they must come from a broken heart

come sit with me for a while

let us put aside all these questions, these opinions.


Maybe infinite love will touch us

maybe in silence He will cherish us

maybe there will be no more need for

my doubt, your certitude, our terrible loss.
