I Was The One...

I Was The One...
I was the one you knew long ago.
You told me then,... You loved me so.
I was the one you once
 loved to talk about.
You said that you loved me
 beyond any doubt.
I was the one you chose
 to always follow.
A hunger for me... 
You can no longer "swallow."
I was the one you cried to,
 in a difficult time.
Now you have removed me
 far from your mind.
I was the one you once held
 dear to your heart.
Please return to me now. 
I will not depart.
I am the one you try to remove
 from your mind.
But my love for you will stand
 the test of time.
I am the one...  Jehovah.  El-Shaddai.
All of your needs.  I shall supply.
I am the one who is waiting for you.
I am here right now... 
The rest is up to YOU!

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!
