A Friend Loves…

December 14, 2014

Become the new one.
Do it.
New life
Jesus offers.

“It’s not so simple
Oh, soft
Spoken friend.
I cannot not-
Not yet.”

She poured her heart
Into a bag of paraphrases,
And my horizon
Stretched a mile.

I took her heart
To heart
And sat
By her swift voice a while.

Then, as it stood
Up to leave,
I felt her walking-pain,

And though tempted
To depart,
Jesus said,

“… To go a mile…
Go with him twain.”
