How to miss Lonely People...........

Think that our problems are the ONLY problems
Focus ONLY on your little group
Serve ONLY in your area and no other
Arrive at the church ONLY when your Ready
Walk around like your the ONLY one in the room
Think that your the ONLY one who does these things

The ONLY thing missing is the L
and that goes above your head

Oh and an E but that can't mean EVERYONE does this?

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even knows she's going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in
To ride in and save the day
And in walks her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
Momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

If judgement looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can't see past her scarlet letter

And we never even met her

I don't feel any better today

  1. Knew her very well and she surfaces when I least expect her...I saw her in the face of my daughter...I see her in the faces of young people at our church...I saw her on Sunday all alone yet there were people right next to her...why didn't I get off of the platform and give her my all? For that I am ashamed...and will ask her forgiveness for and reach out to her before she goes down today...Kathy Isom
