Sometimes I don’t know when to leave well enough alone,

And finding a kindred soul, I don’t want to let you go

I wish M.W. Smith was right, “that a lifetime’s not too long,”

But I guess, on the contrary, he was wrong

And now it has come to this–when I have so much to say?

“Come now, let us reason together,” let us pray

But you only walk away

Leaving me broken and alone

    I get it, Chad. I'm going though a bit of that right now. The difference is that I'm the one that God has told to move, even though many people don't understand. If you need someone to talk to, just give me a call. I lost you for years, due to my own depression and inaction, I refuse to let a few thousand miles to get in the way, after all the trouble god went through to bring us back together.

    • Hey, Dave, that's awesome! I feel the same way. What's a few thousand miles to the God the universe? Your obedience in following His call is very encouraging. Been praying for you. Went through my own dark times, and will certainly cop to inaction on my part as well. (Although this poem wasn't written specifically to address our friendship in particular).

    • Thanks, Matt! I've so little of it that I wonder. It was weird how this one came together.
