You Forgot My Soul

 Here is a poem I read today in my copywork and I just wanted to share it with you. I know Hunter already posted it, but I just wanted my readers to see it. It is really convicting.
You Forgot My Soul

You lived next door to me for years;

We shared our dreams, our joys and tears.

A friend to me you were indeed,

A friend who helped me when in need.

My faith in you was strong and sure.

We had such trust as should endure.

No “words” between us could impose;

Our friends were like – and so, our foes.

What sadness, then, my friend, to find

That, after all, you weren’t so kind;

The day my life on earth did end,

I found you weren’t a faithful friend.

For all those years we spent on earth,

You never talked of second birth.

You never spoke of my lost soul

And of the Christ Who’d make me whole.

I’m lost today eternally

And tell you now my earnest plea.

You cannot do a thing for me –

No words today my bonds will free.

But – do not err, my friend, again –

Do all you can for souls of men.

Plead now with them quite earnestly,

Lest they be cast in hell with me.
