Guess My Name

Guess My Name
By: Sandra Rains

Though I walk through the valley
of uncertainty
I will not fear the unseen
And though I walk through pain
and misery
I will not become unclean
I have roamed this world for decades
untouched by human hands
I am but a fading memory
full of pain, you can not comprehend
In dark my face looks tattered and abused
in light I am like you
mistreated and used
I am the man that comes by
in the middle of the day
To hand you a book of wisdom
“I’m not interested”, you say
So, I turn and walk away
Unshaken by your denial
Knowing you’ll come begging
after a little while
For this world will soon be over
I’m gathering my sheep
I will not abandon
those I plan to keep
Can you guess my name?
Can you say it aloud?
In this, there is no shame
You must confess, you can not be proud
I am the pretty butterfly
that gently lands
My wings are that of velvet
My eye’s that of man
I am the stray dog
that no one wants to feed
I am the open wound
that continues to bleed
Can you guess my name?
Will you talk of me?
Are you my friend?
Or my worst enemy?
This world will soon be over
it is coming to an end
Will you be saved and ready?
or committing sin?
Will you be waiting for me?
Or partying the night away?
Listen to me closely
and hear what I have to say
The end is so close, I know it
I set the date
Ask me for forgiveness
Do not hesitate
Asking, is all it takes
two words from you to me
Do this one thing
and ‘chosen’ you will be
But if you choose to wait
and put it off for another day
It’s possible it’ll be too late
Because I’m on my way
Now I have fore-warned you
And I didn’t mix my words
you can not call these parables
you can’t blame me for your hurt
Just stop and look around you
Can’t you see the devils deeds?
I’m asking you to claim your ground
and plant my loving seeds?
If you do this for me
I will not forget you or your own
and I will reward you
and place you by my throne
Can you guess my name?
It’s easy if you read the signs
It’s just three little letters
known to all mankind
Can you guess my name?
Must I tell you after all these years?
Didn’t you know my name
When I wiped away your tears?
Didn’t you say “Please God, help me?”
And didn’t I come fast and running?
and didn’t I show compassion and help you mercifully?
It shouldn’t be so hard
for you to say my name
When it has never changed
It’s always been the same
I am the setting sun
that you so admire
I am the warmth you so love
by the wooded fire
I am the miracle
that amazes you…. when you die
I am your Lord Savior and Christ
I am your God…. it is “I”
