We Need to Love and Appreciate Each

We Need to Appreciate and Love Each Other!


What would happen if someone

we know will soon die?

Would there be compassion?

 Would anyone cry?


I know of someone who doesn't

 have much longer to live.

No family comes around,

 and nothing to give.


Much of the family have been

busy "tryin' to get even."

An "eye for an eye" is

what they're believin.'


It’s most unfortunate

and truly sad…

What he's done for others--

they're not glad!


They've all chosen to go

their separate ways.

No one caring about what God’s love says.


How did this Happen?  As many wander…

This loved one won't

be around much longer.


So many have spent

years drifting apart.

Not holding Christ' love

 deep within their heart.


This loved one will be in

 better hands... I know!

He'll live forever...with the

redeemer of his soul!


He’ll soon pass away

through death’s revolving door…

Being with Jesus,

Is what he’s waiting for!!


Perhaps someday his

"loved ones" will see.

Today it could be you...

Tomorrow,  it could be me!

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!
