You Forgot My Soul

Reprinted from Christian News

You lived next door to me for years;We shared our dreams, our joys, our tears.A friend to me you were indeed,A friend who helped me in my need.

My faith in you was strong and sure;We had such trust as should endure.No spats between us e'er arose;Our friends were like&md;and so, our foes.

What sadness then, my friend, to findThat, after all, you weren't so kind.The day my life on earth did end,I found you weren't a faithful friend.

For all those years we spent on earthYou never talked of second birth.You never spoke of my lost soulAnd of the Christ who'd make me whole.

I plead today from Hell's cruel fireAnd tell you now my last desire.You cannot do a thing for me;No words today my bonds to free.

But do not err, my friend, again&md;Do all you can for souls of men.Please with them now quite earnestly,Lest they be cast in Hell with me.
