Would You Give Me Love?
Author: Ben Laney

vinebar

Would you forgive me
for everything I've done
Would you forgive me
If I was the prodigal son
If I made a confession
confessed I broke God's commandments
Yes almost every last one
Would you forgive me
for everything I've done

Would you give me love
love from the depths of your heart
Would you give me love
even though I've not been smart
Should I reveal I was a fool
a rebel who scoffed at all the rules
could you share your light when it's dark
Would you give me love
love from the depths of your heart

Would you embrace me
welcome me with loving arms
Would you embrace me
If myself and others I'd harmed
If I bared my soul to you
showed you wrong doors I walked through
might my reception still be warm
Would you embrace me
welcome me with loving arms

Would you give me love
love from the depths of your heart
Would you give me love
even though I've not been smart
Should I reveal I was a fool
a rebel who scoffed at all the rules
could you share your light when it's dark
Would you give me love
love from the depths of your heart

------- Author's Notes -------

I am dedicating this one to my Lil' Sister, Paula. Paula is going to ministerial school, and I hope she majors in LOVE, Forgiveness and Compassion just like Jesus Christ. Then she can use all that good learning to deal with her CUTEST, most FAVORITEST rebel brother in the whole wide world......ME! Ha! Haa! Haaa! With Great Big Love & Admiration, Brother Ben

I won't go into my long comment, I'll email that to you! But WOW! You are such a wonderful writer, too bad you're my brother, or I'd be in love! What a fantastic poem, I feel honored that you could write something so great and dedicate it to lil' ol' me!

Paula, with a Lil' Sis like you it was easy to be inspired to write this one. It is I who have been blessed by having such a sweet sister. Thank you for your very encouraging and kind words here, I appreciate them more than you know. You deserve to have this dedicated to you.
Love, BIG Brother Ben
