Wow, I read this poem in a book, today and it will really make you stop and think, it doesn't give the author so I'm sorry for that, but I read it in the book "One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven" by Mark Cahill.
My friend I stand in judgment now,
And feel that you're to blame somehow.
On Earth I walked with you day by day,
And never did you pint the way.
You knew the Lord in truth and Glory,
But never did you tell the story.
My knowledge then was very dim,
You could have led me safe to him.
Though we lived togther here on Earth,
You never told me of the second birth.
And now I stand this day condemed,
Because you failed to mention Him.
You taught me many thigs, that's true;
I called you "friend" and trusted you.
But I learn now that it's too late,
And you could have kept me from this fate.
We walked by day and talked by night,
And yet 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 this dreaful end,
I cannot now call you "my friend"
I don't know about you, but this really kicks me hard with the importance of witnessing. Much love.
In His Name,
