A Christian's Prayer (poetry)

I had to write this poem today.  For better or worse it is written.   I wrote it after a conversation with someone who calls herself a Christian.  She wanted to know why I helped someone when I always ran out of money before the end of the month.   

A Christian Prayer

Let me share your burden,
I think of it as mine.
I know it's heavy.
It might crush the both of us,
but let's try. 


As I  thought of her remarks this wonderful song by Eric Clapton came to mind.  "Have You Ever Loved A Woman?"

and after that the sentiments of Jesus of Nazareth spoke to me.  Read them below.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man

lay down his life for his friends."
