My Friend

Unknown Author – 2010

My friend has brought me here.
25 years ago
Darren ... just a boy
Knew Jesus.
Asked me if I did....
"No, He isn't real," I said.

And as I said it,
I hoped He didn't hear me
Darren was a friend
Who told me about his best friend.
A friend has brought me here.

Many years later,
A tiny child
Not yet human in the eyes of some,
Asked for life.
"He's gone," they said.
"He's here," I said.
And I prayed to Him
For the first time ever.
He heard me, the child lived
And is now a young man.
His life has brought me here.

Jesus, you are real.
You are my friend.
The friend who brought me here.
