I forgot to love you.

I forgot to love you, but I never forgot to judge you.
I told you I'd pray for you, but I never sat down to pray with you.
I showed you where the doors to the church were, but I never walked with you through them.
I told you what you were doing wrong, but never showed what was right.
I asked who your parents are, but never told you whose child you were.
I gave you a label, but never really knew your name.
I noticed your habits, but never wanted to know your heart.
and
now
I
am
the
one
who is unloved and lonely and wrong and labeled and unknown
all because I always had time to judge you,
but always forgot to love you.
