“Love up close when someone cares.”
Evident in humanity,
God’s light is shining, look and see.
Ministering to each others needs
Consoling ragged hearts that bleed
Grace-filled words from tender lips
Extended arms when someone trips
Cheering up a woeful friend
Being patient at days end
Giving--expecting nothing back
Filling voids in lives that lack
Gentleness cupped in tired hands
A smile that says, “I understand”
Forgiveness that keeps no score
Guidance sought at scripture’s core
Pleading screams and Satan’s jeers
Belch from the pit of steamy tears.
Captives in a sea of fire
Enslaved by every dark desire.
Sagging shoulders, dragging feet,
Outward signs of one’s defeat.
Hearts bound up with bitterness,
Never showing love exists.
Death that roams above the grave,
Coveting souls from Him who saves.
Tangled feelings, weathered pain
Sometimes used for hellish gain.
Liar, Liar spins and weaves
Webs that shimmer to deceive.
Traps are set with evil power
Like vultures waiting to devour.
Hearing Heaven’s gated doors
Slamming shut forevermore.
Gnawing emptiness--never fed
Eternal days of dire dread.
