Please Don’t Walk Away

Will it be
That I
Might be
Left Behind
In life’s shadow
Where birds
No longer sing
And the breeze
Brings no refreshment
Where darkness
Only reigns
And light
No longer penetrates
Where loved ones voices
Are no longer heard
I’m alone
Alone and trapped
The door has closed
The heat
No escape
Lord, please
Help me
I don’t want
To be labelled
Labelled with a barcode
Where my price
Is visible to all who see
Please open the door
One last time
Set me free
‘Tis only
The price You paid
That I want
All to see

  1. Is this a heavy End-Times nightmare? I know that we are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, but…
    Remember how Peter says that we are “kept”? That is a powerful word filled with all the tenacity of our Captain. Fret not, Sister. Beautifully written.


    1. Written for all who have a beating heart … for unsaved loved ones … those who are backsliding … those who doubt … those whose hearts harbour unbelief … in the fear of the Lord, through the blood of Christ in thankfulness … and not out of fear, for He has not given the body of Christ the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) Thank you Doug.
