Comments about Christopher Buchheit
Word Of Welcome
Yesterday a stranger came knocking at my door,
Fraught with welcome and good intentions,
But the decision to allow her entrance would not be easy,
Such sweetness and grace is indeed hard to refuse,
Still what lies behind the door must be carefully guarded,
For many have come full of empty promises,
professing words of love and understanding,
But so many times once inside,
Those words of comfort change so quickly,
Kindness turns to wrath, warmth into cruelty, love into hate.
But don't be fooled by the one who greets you at the gate.
He may scoff ...
