A Prayer Of Loneliness

Lord, fill my soul with your peace.

Let the loneliness dissipate if it is your will, if not, I
will carry on yet for a while with your help and guidance.

This life Lord, seems so long until it's end where it
suddenly seems way too short.

Resignation, as happiness, I expect is a very fine line.

Daily checking attitudes, trying hard to stay in touch,
having such a difficult time, because I want to do my own
thing and let freedom ring within.

Heart ablaze with love for you, quietly accepting your
verdict in all I do.

Lord, help me to make the lives of those around me count,
not just my own.

Take me wherever you want me to go, the heights and depths
of your love is enough for me as sacrificing self, I become
what you have in store for me.

Thank you Lord, for all you have done in my life, the good
and bad experiences that have helped me to grow ever closer
to your heart as I slowly walk the final steps of earth.

Lord, take my entire being and soul and do with it what you

The love I have for you grows silently stronger still.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Ending of life comes with a deep loneliness because you are alone in your death. Reaching out to God is a natural response for everyone.
Even on their death beds, I have heard atheists, say God help me.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
