The Simple Life

Alone


The crowds are large

The people many

The needs great

The conversation lively

But my heart is lonely

=====

The sky is blue

The wind is cool

The sun is just right

The birds are singing

But my heart is lonely

=====

The rain has fallen

The seeds have sprouted

The plants have grown

The fruit is harvested

Yet my heart is lonely

=====

I’m laughing in public

I’m chatting with people

I’m making progress at work

I’m teaching the wore

Yet my heart is lonely

=====

My heart isn’t just lonely

It’s broken, scattered

It’s blown to smithereens

Its pulzerised

There’s nothing there

=====

You have forsaken me

I am adrift at sea

There’s no land around me

No sight of a tree

Just water everywhere

I am alone

=====

You have deserted me

I am in the desert

In the scorching sun

Low on water

With mirages all around

I am alone

=====

You have abandoned me

I am by the roadside

Not a vehicle in sight

Those that pass speed by

Not a glance my way

I am alone

=====

I have no food

I have no water

I have no shelter

I have no family

I have no work

I am alone

=====

I have nowhere to go

I have nothing to do

I have no one to talk to

I have no hope to hold on to

I have no reason to believe

I am alone

=====

Then I hear it

A rustle in the air

A shift in the atmosphere

A stillness in the silence

Like a warm wind blew through

I am no longer alone

=====

I was no longer alone

There in the room it all changed

Peace descended like a warm rain

Calm wrapped me like a blanket

My heart began to settle

I am no longer alone

=====

I am still at the bottom

And the only way is up

I am still unsure how to move

But strength is coming soon

Though I am still grasping

I am no longer alone

=====

I am learning my Father cares

I am learning He has a plan

I am learning nothing is wasted

I am learning it all works

I am learning He is enough

I am no longer alone

=====

I am not alone

God is with me

I am not alone

Grace is abundant

I am not alone

Strength is rising

=====

I am not alone

My Father is watching

I am not alone

Jesus is with me

I am not alone

The Spirit is teaching

=====

I am not alone

I will never be alone

I am learning to press in

I am growing in faith

I am no longer alone

=====
