Alone and Afraid

Alone and Afraid?



There was someone I knew,

alone and afraid...

Her husband left her…

She felt betrayed!


I remember seeing her look

of despair…

Was there anyone who

really cared?


This was a very

 difficult situation.

A lot of heartache and frustration!


I remember seeing her

 at church before.

But no one sees her anymore!


People would pass her by,

Seemingly, not concerned…

Even though things in her life,

had taken “the wrong turn.”


Aren’t we to help the widows

 and single mothers too?

This is what God’s word

asks of me and you!


As the body of Christ...

We should serve one another.

Reaching out to the widow

 and single mother.


We must let them know they’re

not forgotten!

Before their lives hit

“rock bottom”


This is a command Christ

Wants us to do!

He’d do the same for

ME and for 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!
