My Friend

by D. J. Higgins

My, friend. I stand in the judgment
And feel that you’re to blame somehow….
ON Earth, I walked with you day by day
And never did you point the way.

You knew the Lord, the Truth and Glory.
My knowledge then was very dim;
You could have led me safe to Him.

Though we lived together on the earth,
You never told me of the second birth.
And now I stand this day condemned,
Because you failed to mention Him.
You taught me many things, that’s true;
I called you “friend” and trusted you.
But, I learn now that it’s too late. 
You could have kept me from this fate.

We walked by day and talked by night,
And you showed me not the Light.
You let me live, and love, and die,
You knew I’d never live on high. 

Yes, I called you “friend” in life,
And trusted you through joy and strife,
And yet on coming to the end,
I cannot now call you “My Friend.”


How many of your friends and family know that you are a Christian? Do you love them enough to tell them? Why you live life the way you do? Why you believe?
