When I need a friend

When I needed you
You were far away
Turned your back
And walked from me

But that instant
I knew I have only Jesus
My friend and brother.
I had to talk to him

Yes sometimes I miss it
The physical convo
The laughter and the pain
Mingled in one true friendship

I have found my solace
I have a truer friend
Someone of substance
A hope giver, my redeemer

**I wrote this poem after I was betrayed by a friend 3 years ago and she thought it necessary to walk away, then I knew it was time to remain in this friendship with Christ that is ever sure. My best friend, confidant, and hope, always there to give me a shoulder to cry one; that’s Christ!**
