You may be alone in this world
With no friends around you
‘Cause every word you say is true,
Our Lord Jesus is with you.
You may feel abandon by your loved ones
Family, relatives, and friends.
Put all your trust to our Lord Jesus,
He will guide you throughout your sorrows.
You may be judged by your enemies
With their bitterness and tilted lies.
Have faith in Jesus and be merciful,
God Himself will reveal the truth for all.
Even in your days of success, happiness,
Anger, loneliness, frustration, weariness…
Our Lord Jesus is with you always.
He loves you as His precious ones.
Somewhere down the endless line
In which they called “Eternal Life,”
Jesus will reward you in Heaven
And no more sufferings and pain.

God is always there for us. He is there in special occasions, holidays, in sorrows, and so on. He is everywhere. We must remember Him all the time.
I dedicate this poem to Seminario De Jesus Nazareno and Community in Borongan, Eastern Samar, Philippines, to my Auntie Sarah Mabansag Puno who was always there during my formation years in high school seminary and for my lovely wife Dr. Gre Pearl Gay B. Dy. – Alon Calinao Dy
