When the time comes
and we take our place before You
will there be, an empty place
near by, beside us, behind us
because we did not speak?
Will we look around and see
someone, who isn't there
our heart crashing down
tears falling freely, because
because we did not speak?
To our neighbor, just across the way
sharing what we know
in words, in action
showing to them, the Light we have, inside
will we search for, and not find
a co-worker that we have known for so long
years have been spent, day by day working together
but they are missing, because
because, we did not speak
did not share, what we know, what we hold inside
because, we did not fully set ourselves apart
giving them cause to see and to ask
what do you have, that makes you different?
We did not, share
now they are missing from the line
We look around us, searching through the multitude
and a dear friend, is missing
not there, anywhere, because
because we did not, speak up
in the moments when we could have
we remained silent
and they are not here
Family, where is the one you loved so dear?
stretching, bending, turning you look
but they are not here, nowhere in line, nowhere in the crowd
tears fall now because
because you did not speak
they are not here
when it would have been so simple
a few words, a life spent living the truth
set apart from worldly ways, just enough
to cause the question, why? What do you have
that makes you different?
but you did not speak up
chose to hide the light, because
you feared the reaction, the rejection
you feared not doing it right, not saying it right
even as you knew the truth, knew this day would come
you chose to remain silent, not sharing
now, as you stand and search you see
they are not here, because
because you, did not speak.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh to the Father, but by me." John 14: 6 King James Version
And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, "All power is given unto me in heaven and earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teach them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28: 18-20 KJV

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
