Will You Spend Time with Me?

Will You Spend Time With Me?


If you loved me the way Christ does

What a difference this would make!

Perhaps then...  I wouldn't feel

like my "life is a mistake"


Maybe if you listened to me,

and weren't so "busy" all the time.

I'd find a friend.  Who.... like Christ,

 is compassionate and kind.


The time we've spent together has

been few and far between.

It seems like I’ve done a "good job" of

 messing up everything.


May I ask you...  Will you

give me another chance?

And take time to pray that God will

 change my circumstance?


Your thoughts and actions speak

louder than words spoken.

May your heart yield to the

Holy Spirit and be broken.


Thank you so much, for the

time listening to me!

It's people like you that I want to

 be with throughout eternity!

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!
