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.
