MAY I BELONG TO YOU?

May i belong to you,

Needing someone true?…

Myself I’ll share

‘Though can’t lend much hair,

Could you…accept a friend new?

–Jonathan Caswell

FRIENDSHIP’S PRICE

FRIENDSHIP’S PRICE*

I say there’s a price for friendship,

It often will be in disguise…

Dealing with inconvenience

It hits between the eyes.

Perhaps at the worst moment

One’s friend may arrive and say…

Could you please cover my hours,

My family’s come from far away!

Of course, it is inconvenient,

But he’s done similarly…

When you were in trouble

He helped you out of the tree.

So now my friend has things settled,

In a moment he’s coming back…

One learns to be suitably mettled

With a certain amount of tact!

–Jonathan Caswell

TRIBULATION IS COMING

TRIBULATION IS COMING

 

Do you know in your heart

Whom you can trust…

At suffering’s start,

Who won’t your feelings bust?

I’ve been daydreaming

About a certain friend

From another religion…

How will our friendship end?

If his group is then majority

Will I be fed to the wolves…

Or will he somehow stand up straight

And we both be summarily culled?

I pray for my wife and me

That we would stand up strong…

She’d prefer to go in the Rapture,

If we can live that long.

Paul the Apostle warned all

Marrieds to expect stress….

We’ve through a few

Episodes, not less!

Christ had knowledge of all men

No one had enough faith…

In the final throes of this world

Only God will make sure a soul’s safe!
