When asked what she feared most, my best friend responded with becoming dead to the world. And to help her confront her fears, I wrote this poem. I love you, deary! You'll never be invisible to me!

We Didn’t Know
 
She stood in the lobby
Of the cold movie theater
Just one trip to the bathroom
And she was left alone.
She called for her friends
They came to get her quickly.
When asked why she was forgotten
They replied, “We didn’t know.”
She was walking along
The crowded hallways
When she stumbled upon another
And fell face first.
Just to put them to the test
She lied there for a while
When asked why she was forgotten
They admitted, “We didn’t know.”
And when she was very old
Her age caused her death
Yet many were alive
Those who didn’t find her
For an entire, dreary day
When asked by Jesus Christ why she was forgotten
She said, “They didn’t know.
I was always forgotten, and I never knew why
Of all people to remain invisible
Why should it have been me?”
The Lord looked at her and informed
“You were a light to that world, and we know it up here.
Come forward, my child, and remember real love.”
