Spare a Moment


“I have no time for you right now

No time for Christ today

My wife and I have had a row

And now she’s ran away


If Jesus Christ my friend were real

If God Himself were true

He’d know right now the way I feel

He’d tell me what to do”


“That’s why I’m here today my friend

God wants to set you free

God wants your wayward life to end

And give you eyes to see


The Lord our God is everywhere

His eyes are far from blind

So now I’m here The Truth to share

To clear your doubtful mind


The Word of God can change your life

Can make the fighting cease

Can even bring you back your wife

With happiness and peace


But even if you stayed alone

He’d give you strength to stand

His love could melt your heart of stone

Will lead to understand


You’d see the right you’d see the wrong

You’d know The Truth inside

You’d know you’ve sung the devil’s song

And want to turn the tide


That’s why The Truth is at your door

That’s why you’re standing here

So spare my friend a moment more

And lend in faith your ear”.....

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.
