This is a poem I wrote last Easter, I just wanted to give it a rework and then post it anew.
Help me father I need you. I am left here alone frightened and so far from home.
Peace be with you, peace be with me. Help me father can you not set me free.
I am alone here in Gethsemane this beautiful garden where I have often rested.
They are coming for me soon father and I shall be arrested.
What can I say father what must I do I am so frightened and scared please may I have a word from you.
Can you not take this bitter cup away from me.
I do not want to be whipped and crucified, I do not want to be questioned and disbelieved.
OH! Father I am scared help me pleased or would that make you too aggrieved.
OH! Father they will drag me through the streets they will laugh at me, my disciples will all deny me.
Father are you there have you denied me , speak father I do not hear you, give me sign you are there father, let me see.
I am so tired father I have done all you have asked of me.
I sat and broke bread with them and told them the message that they have to spread.
They will have to do it now in my name as I will be dead.
I hear them coming any second Judas will give me a kiss
OH! Please father let me give it all a miss.
Oh! okay I finally understand
the holy dove is here to hold my hand .
I shall do my part I shall do my best.
I shall full fill every part of your request.
Thy will be done, thy will be mine.
I shall do my best father I shall shine.
Just stay with me father stay with me please
I am so scared I am weak at the knees
…OH! no here comes Peter he will try to stand up for me
I do not want him mixed up in this bit with me.
Okay I am ready I think I can stand
thank you father for sending the dove to be at my right hand.
You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth ………….. I am he.
