Poems

Bring Them Home

Bring them home

All the prodigal sons

You know them

All those wayward ones

 

From the wine

To the women and song

Then the pig pen

Where they have thronged

 

Call them back

To their Father’s arms

Waiting with love

Rescue them from those charms

 

It’s hard to watch

A loved one live there

Give me strength

While I try continuing to care

 

Rejection is harsh

When they have walked away

Bring him back Lord

And help him this time to stay
