Real Word

Friends in me confiding
The struggles that they bear
Difficulties facing
Hidden that they share

Spouse of suffering
Illness without hope
Child with depression
So difficult to cope

Elderly need caring
Or children cannot bear
Suicidal thoughts
Day of deep despair

Listening intently
Compassion of the heart
Tears of sorrow well
No words to even start

These common words arise
To them my offer pleads
Will you please let me know?
Anything you need

Crosses of the journey
Ones which we all bear
I know the One they need
Please answer may I share

Oh Lord give me the strength
To share the answer true
The wisdom of eternal
The gift of love of You
