(a poem for my friends who feel alone)
You don’t have to tell me,
You don’t have to say a word,
Your actions tell it all —
Life’s been tough and you can’t move.
I don’t want you to feel sorry,
Please don’t feel you’re in a crowd,
You are family, you are with me,
You are loved, and you are home.
I know you’re lonely, but don’t you feel
Like you are ever alone;
Don’t fake a smile, but you can try!
I have a shoulder to cry on.
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Can explain those lonely years,
But I am here to hear your story
Here to pray your tears away.
