I Was Looking for Someone...

I Was Looking for Someone

I was looking for someone who’d love me

faults and all,

I don’t know who to talk to—

or who to call.

I wanted to talk to my “Christian”

neighbor yesterday,

But he wouldn’t even give me

the time of day.”

He was too busy cleaning his motor

home and S.U.V.

To spend any time with someone like me.

Are all church people just like

my neighbor,

Too busy watching t.v., reading

the newspaper.

I’m sure I’ll find someone some day,

Who’s not too busy to show me the way.

I know God has some people out

there somewhere,

Someone to love me—someone to care.

I ask, are you one that I can truly depend,

Who’ll be there for me till the very end?

I’m not looking for people playing church—

I’m really not,

But for those truly saved, redeemed and

blood bought.

These are the people God can really use,

Sold out to Jesus—they’ve nothing to lose!!!

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!
