Apart From Love

It won’t matter what you said,

apart from love-

 

apart from love.

 

It won’t  matter what you did,

apart from love…

 

apart from love.

 

It won’t matter the trophies earned,

the books you  read

all you learned.

 

It won’t matter when you’re gone

what you gave, your favorite song,

it won’t matter when you’re gone-

apart from love.

 

Apart from love,

nothing matters –

apart from love,

lives are scattered.

 

Nothing matters in the end,

apart from love.

 

Your sharp retort,

judgments heard-

investments, losses

unspoken words-

 

not one matters, not at all,

apart from love, you build a wall.

 

Apart from love you build a wall.

Nothing will matter,

in the end, not at all-

apart from love.

 

Apart from love.

 

Let all that you do be done in love. ~1 Corinthians 16:14

    I once had a pastor ask us, “After your funeral, what are your friends and family going to say about you as they eat potato salad?” Love is the one thing that lasts and is remembered.(1Corinthians 13::13)
