Alone

Alone

I am alone,
No one beside me ‘fore the throne.
All come and go,
And so I turn my heart to stone
And stay alone.

I am alone.
Emotion seems a worthy price.
Just let it go,
Embrace the noble sacrifice.
Remain alone.

And yet, I feel.
I am alone, and incomplete.
And as I go,
I long to hear some other feet.
I want to feel.

I do not see
How these desires can e’er be met,
But I will go
And pray for faith to never fret
Till I can see.

One thought on “Alone

  1. What a touching poem, @JoetheWaller. Loneliness creeps into my life at times. Then, I am reminded that God allows this time of being alone to grow us and to embrace his great love via scripture, prayer, fasting, and our circumstances.
