He Turned To Me (poem)

He turned to me a teardrop in his eye

What has he done to share this fate with me

To bear such pain and wretch├ęd misery

We welcome death to come and set us free

-

But him it seems salvation does he see

He reaches for our answer in the sky

He holds a fate that nothing can deny

Was it for nothing that he came to die

-

So strange that I should pay for sins today

And bear a witness to event so true

-

I held my screams to listen to him pray

Within his blood I sensed a hope anew

-

I heard him say before I passed away

Forgive them for they know not what they do

Those are about the truest words that you could utter. It we have no forgiveness, we have nothing.
