A Sight To See

I met an old friend yesterday

He isn’t very well

In truth he so neglects himself

He’s on the road to hell


He wanted me to talk to him

I did I told him straight

I was shocked to see him so distraught

The enemy at the gate


I too have been where he now is

Though I did not hit the drink

But I have known katatonic

As low as you can sink


Our spirit needs affirming

A reason to go on

A counsellor beside us

Talk straight and cheer us on


I came away uncertain

What will he do now?

But in myself more energised

To live my life and how!


The vision shocked me to the core

How low some people get

Have mercy Lord and heal us all

There is healing for us yet
