Have You a Friend?

Have You a Friend?


Have you a friend you love and love?

Does this, your friend love you?

Where in this world of push and shove

We need a heart that’s true


Have you a friend who’d understand?

The foolish things you‘ve done

Who’s always there to lend a hand

Until your battle’s won


A friend who values what you do

Listens to what you say

Who’ll help in life your goals pursue

Who’s with you all the way


Have you a friend who loves to give?

Who loves to love and care

Who lives the way one ought to live

And how one ought to share


Have you a friend who’ll tell no lies?

When seeing things were wrong

Would take your hand and criticise

In hope you’d change your song


Have you a friend who would agree

To walk with you life’s road

While though your faults are plain to see

Would help to bear your load


Have you a friend who’d take your blame

Who in your place would die

Whilst in death’s shadows bless you name

Whispering prayers on high


Have you a friend in Jesus Christ

Who all these things portrait

Who for our sins was sacrificed

That we would change our ways.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
