He passed by Joanne today,

Said HI, in the usual way…

She said whistfully

She missed him to see,

It made it a less pleasant day!

He’d normally come down to write,

But he had some sickness to fight…

A quick HI!–BYE!

Then he had to fly,

With traffic his schedule was tight.

It pleased him to think he was missed,

Though he still voiced denial of this…

Since long ago

He’s struggled to know

He has value–as others witness!

But he likes it when she is there,

Her pleasant nature–what she wears…

Sometimes there’s no way

He can come down to “play”,

In that case it’s a life that he bears.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
