Do You Love Me?

I know you're a Christian -
You do what is right,
And you read your Bible
Morning and night.
You pray for the lost ones
Each day earnestly.
I know you love Jesus -
But do you love me?

Are you willing to listen
When I need to talk?
And can you spare time
Beside me to walk?
Or are you repelled
By the walls that you see,
So you give up trying
To get through to me?

If you weren't so busy
And stopped talking "church",
Perhaps you would notice
My painful search.
When that love you speak of
In you I can see,
Then I'll know for certain
God loves even me!
