What Would I Have Done

What Would I Have Done

Intense was the loneliness
in His final hour of prayer,
yet Jesus put His trust
in His Heavenly Father's care.

His friends were present
in whom He could confide,
but fell fast asleep
not remaining by His side.

Would I have stayed awake
to be with Him that day,
as Jesus faced the cross
and the price He had to pay?

I've asked myself the question,
what would I have done?
in the Garden of Gethsemane
with God's beloved Son!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
