December 1988

 

Madison Square

 

Jesus loves me this I know

for the Bible tells me so

 

we sing the words aloud

enthusiastically

the Spirit of God with us

working through us

to lead us on to Him

except

that Spirit I dont feel

weeping on the inside

for what I couldnt have

I stand

unlike my friends around me

weeping for joy in the Lord

 

feeling lost, alone, and forgotten

I stood silent

how could I sing these songs of joy

knowing that for me

these words were false

Monique and Ron

my friends right beside me

have it right

as I hope that God

will soon allow me

 

People need the Lord

we hear a little later

and I

recalling an other friend

Brenda on the piano

cry at last

honestly

quietly

Peter, too,

needs the Lord
