I guess I just couldnít tell.
If anyone had asked me
I would have said, ďTheyíre doing well!Ē
When did the flame start to flicker
And the enthusiasm fade away?
I guess I just didnít see it.
I didnít know what to say.
At first it was just occasionally,
They didnít miss all the time.
A child was sick, or he had to work,
I still thought everything was fine.
After a while it got more frequent,
Their seat was empty more than not.
I should have said something then,
But that would have put me on the spot.
If only I had noticed.
If only I had tried.
I didnít do a thing to help them.
Thatís the truth, it cannot be denied.
Now their seat is always empty.
They have left the Lord, I donít know why.
And when I think about ďIf only...Ē
All I can do is cry.
