Will You Spend Time with Me?

Will You Spend Time With Me???


I asked if you’d spend some time with me.

But you just seemed to forget about me.


I seen you in church and shook your hand.

But when I wanted to talk, you just “ran.”


I had some heartfelt issues and needed prayer.

I couldn’t find you!  You weren’t there!


Are you my “brother?”  Am I mistaken?

I feel like I’ve been left alone and forsaken.


What happened to the verse; “love one another?”

Shouldn’t we be there for our sister and brother?


I’m sorry to disappoint you.  I won’t be back here.

It seems like I can’t find a friend around here.


I’ll spend my Sundays staying at my home.

I’ll be content with just being alone.


I’m going to talk to Jesus in a heart felt prayer.

I heard he’s someone who listens and cares.


I hope that God’s spirit will daily remind you.

There’s hurting people like me all around you.


I hope that you’ll take the time and pray.

And reach out to a lost soul…    TODAY!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
