‘It’s cold and there’s nothing to do in here’


It”s cold and there’s nothing to do in here…I don’t want the new visitation thing. My family comes from an hour and 30 minutes away. Crazy, rite?

You can put this poem in.


My friend, I stand in judgment now

And feel that you’re to blame somehow

On Earth I walked with you day to day

And never did you point the way


You knew the Lord in truth and glory

But never did you tell the story

My knowledge then was very dim

You could have led me safe to him


Though we lived together here on Earth

You never told me of the second birth

And now I stand this day condemned

Because you failed to mention him


You taught me many things, that’s true

I called you “friend” and trusted you

But I learn now that it’s too late

And you could have kept me from this fate


We walked by day and talked by night

And yet you showed me not the light

You let me live, and love, and die

You knew I’d never live on high


Yes I called you friend in life

And trusted you through joy and strife

And yet on coming to this dreadful end

I cannot now call you my friend.
