Who Will Not Leave You?

Your Best Friend: Poem

Have you ever had your heart broken? If so, here’s some help for a broken heart. I wrote the poem about fifteen years ago. It was originally published in “WORDS…RHYMES…POETRY & PROSE!” in 2008. The poem has also published in: “Writing After Fifty” and in the book “Gone Electric: A Poetry Collection.”

Your Best Friend

If ever you find yourself being broken apart,
Because the one you trusted has broken your heart,
And all the time you find yourself crying,
While on the inside you feel like you’re dying,

Call me if you feel lonely,
Come to me when your life needs to mend,
From time to time you need only,
Someone with love unconditional – your best friend.

One time life gave you a fright,
Existence was as black as a moonless midnight,
You were feeling so out-of-place,
With no one to hug or embrace,

Then you saw the light,
You came to me in the middle of the night,
And you ran to me to give your heart,
And that’s when your new life did start

Call me if you feel lonely,
Come to me when your life needs to mend,
From time to time you need only,
Someone with love unconditional – Jesus, your best friend.

Psalm 34:18 English Standard Version, “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”

I’m Not So Brave

I’m Not So Brave

They tell me I’m in a high-risk group to die.
I’m not so brave.
I admit I’m very afraid.
The world as I knew it has come to an end.

And why?
A virus so small
With the naked eye
it can’t be seen

And people so selfish …
They’d rather do what they want.
Their actions could cause me to die.
Mankind’s choices have to make God cry.

And I Trust in the Lord with all my heart,
I do not lean on my own understanding.
In all my ways I try to acknowledge God,
And I know the Lord God will make straight my paths.
