You were once my friend
The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
BY Vera Lynn Edge
One day a girl named
Louise fell asleep and dreamed a strange dream. she dreamed that a gal in Hell
wrote her a letter and sent it to her by an angel-its a true story - if you can
read it without weeping then......
My friend I stand in judgment now.
And feel that you are to blame somehow.
On earth, I walked with you day by day,
And you never did point the way.
You knew the Lord in truth and glory.
But never did you tell the story.
My knowledge then was very dim.
You could have led me safe to him.
Though we lived together on earth.
you never told me of the sacred birth,
and now I stand this day condemned, because you failed to mention him.
You taught me many things that's true,
I called you friend and trusted you.
but I learn now that its too late.
you could have kept me from this fate.
We walked by day and talked by night.
And yet you showed me not the light.
you let me live and love and die.
But you knew I would never live on high.
Yet I called you friend in life.
And trusted you through joy and strife.
and yet on coming to the end.
I cannot, now , call you "My Friend".
After Louise awoke from that dream and it was still real in her mind, She contemplated the meaning of the dream. And thought that she had not done all that she could to tell her friends about Jesus. She said to herself that she would make a point to tell her friend Marsha about the dream some time soon!! The next day She called her friend Marsha and this was the conversation "Bill is Marsha there?? "Louise , you don't know yet!!!". "No, Bill what". "MARSHA WAS KILLED LAST NIGHT IN A CAR ACCIDENT"!" I thought you knew"
What are you doing to tell others of the Love of Christ!!
This was from littleprincess62 on Christians Of the United States and posted as a letter from hell...I have heard it as a song called You Were Once My Friend....It has done much to wake me up to the need to tell others about our Lord....
MY LORD...Give us a burden as never before to tell the lost about YOU!
For the LAMB

Recently, a friend on Yahoo Answers wrote a poem after reading "My Friend"
I think it compliments "My Friend" and with the permission of VB4Jesus here is the poem!
Don't Bother Me!
Don't bother me with souls to save,
I've got my schedule planned.
There's work to do and sports to play,
My day's completely crammed.
And there's my colleague every time,
He's got his own religion.
It's not my job to change his mind,
It's up to his decision.
Those who've yet to take a stand,
Like the girl across the street.
She's way too young to understand
The Savior she'll one day meet.
When people die without believing,
I know their prospect's black.
A day or two, I'm done with grieving,
I shrug it off my back.
One day I'll stand before the Lord,
My head bent down in shame.
My friend from work, my neighbor's child,
From Hell call out my name.
