Floating along in a sea of people,
I feel all alone;
For though there are many faces,
By them I’m not known.
I smile, and speak, and gesture –
But nobody cares.
They gaze in my direction
But it’s just a blank stare.
This time of year is supposed to be
Merry and bright…
But all I can feel is an ache
That won’t pass with the night.
Thank God for Jesus, the One
Who is always there;
He brings peace when I’m fretful
And joy when I’m full of despair.
I apologize for the disheartening nature of this poem…but it’s how I’m feeling right now, and I wanted to be real about it. There is a light, however, in the darkness: Jesus, the Son of God, Who came to earth to give us abundant life – both now and throughout eternity. With Him, I (and you) will never be alone. ❤
