READERS’ POETRY: From the Bury Free Press of Friday, March 18

This week’s poem, called Every Link, is by John Radford.

Every link of chain that I wore has fallen to the ground,

every burden that I bore lies scattered all around.

Everything that I did contrive, I have given to him,

everything that I used to hide I have laid before the king,

because he loves me more than a friend.

He loves me and his love doesn’t end.

Every time I shed a tear he is there to dry my eye,

every time I doubt his word he says that he doesn’t lie.

Every time I cannot go on he holds outstretched his hand,

every time I am feeling sad he reminds me of his plan,

because he loves me more than a friend.

He loves me and his love doesn’t end.

Every time I look up I can see a saviour there,

every problem that comes my way I know that he will share.

Even though he died for me alone upon a tree,

even though he rose again he came to live within me,

because he loves me more than a friend.

He loves me and his love doesn’t end.

Every time I look around I can see a troubled face,

every time I turn around there is a troubled place.

It hurts me so much deep inside that I tell him what I see,

He says “Don’t be afraid, I see it too and have come to set them free,

because I love them more than a friend,

I love them and my love doesn’t end”.

I know he loves me more than a friend,

He loves me and his love doesn’t end.
