Somebody Loves You

Dear Friend,
How are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I love and care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends. I waited all day hoping you would want to talk with me also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day and cool breezes to rest you—and I waited. You never came. Oh, yes, it hurt me—but I still love you because I am your friend.
I saw you fall to sleep last night and longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and face. Again, I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you! You awakened late and rushed off to work. My tears were in the rain.
Today you look so sad—so all alone. It makes my heart ache because I understand. My friends let me down and hurt me many times, too, but I love you.
Oh! If you would only listen to me! I LOVE YOU! I try to tell you in the blue sky and in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in the leaves on the trees and breathe it in the colors of the flowers. I shout it to you in the mountain streams and give the birds songs of love to sing! I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature scents. My love for you is deeper than the oceans, and bigger than the biggest want or need in your heart! Oh! If only you knew how much I want to help you. I want you to meet my Father. He wants to help you too. My Father is that way, you know.
Just call me—ask me—talk with me! Oh, please don’t forget me. I have so much to share with you. Okay, I won’t hassle you any further. You are free to choose me. It is your decision. I have chosen you, because of this I will wait – because I love you.
Your Friend, Jesus Christ

This poem was given to me by one of Belmont oldest members. It was published in 1979 in the Florida Baptist Witness Paper. I wanted to share it with Belmont Family to be encouraged and comforted during these trying times of coping with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Be blessed, stay safe and keep praying.
