So many folk I know but do not,

They come, they worship and pray.

Then quietly, head down, they leave

And there is nothing left to say.



I wonder, distressed?  Sad or lost?

A sadness they cannot hide.

Someone they knew loved and lost

No longer by their side?



Or feelings of inadequacy

Despondency or distressed.

Or are they seeking fellowship,

Feeling shy?  Or depressed?



Are we not encouragers (*)

Or maybe we do not care.

I turn attention to myself,

Do I know they are there?



Do I just seek the popular?

Some sorrowing I see.

Lord, help me to be to them what I

Would have them be to me!



(*) At least!
