BETRAYING THE SAVIOUR WITH A KISS GOOD-NIGHT
I knew I should've gone to church today,
But sleep was more important than an hour with my Saviour.
I knew I should've joined my friends in prayer.
Instead, I spent my day
Travelling in aimless directions
Through a mind full of cobwebs.
All my nightmares came true
In a dream that I had,
And I awoke mourning in the morning of my afternoon.
I knew I should've gone to church tonight,
But the darkness swallowed the light,
And I finish a poem
While Jesus is crying.
The wasted day is complete,
And, as I reach for the light switch,
I say to Messiah, "Good-night.
It's time to turn off the light."
And I hear my Saviour respond,
"No. Turn it on."
