Please, could we talk a minute

Just for a minute please?

It is not that important, no, not really

I’d just like some company.

How are you?

Good, I’m fine too.

Anyway, what is new?

Nothing really

I just wanted to say

“Hello, how are you, how was your day?”

And then be on my way.

Not much conversation

It’s just the idea

I like being around you

Even if it’s just for a minute.

Thanks for your time

It means much to me

Oh, I have to go now…

Until next we meet.

As you can see I wrote this poem many years ago. I called a friend but she said she couldn’t talk and asked if it was important. I told her no, that I was just bored and wanted to talk to someone. She suggested I write a poem about it. 
 Dear Friend, God just wants to spend time with you. You are His child and He longs to have time just with you. Even if it is just for a minute or two and, even if it isn’t about “the important” things in life. He so longs hear you speak His name and to hear your voice. Of course, He never says good-bye to us and He never leaves us. He is always waiting for us to meet Him right where we are. Anywhere, anytime.  So…how about it? He’s waiting with open arms and a ready ear whispering your name…come.

James 4:8a:   “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”

  1. Love that God never says to us, “Oh, it's just you again.” Never ending open ended converations / relationships are so… GODly. You are a great poet. Wonderful way to share of God's awesome wonderfulness.


  2. Thank you both so much! I pray it speaks to everyone wherever they are in their walk with the Lord and if they don't have that special relationship with Him that He'll use it to bring them to Him.
