THE NOT SO POPULAR

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!
