    Alone With God

    ALONE WITH GOD

     

    Without time or space

    to hinder me.

    I am alone with God.

     

    Only this body

    betrays me. Still,

    I am alone with God.

     

    One purpose,

    many missions.

    I am alone with God.

     

    Jesus by my side

    all my days and nights.

    I am alone with God.

     

    This place I long always to be,

    that I fear to lose; will not.

    For He will ne’er depart.

     

    I am never alone with God.

    Very clean, and uplifting. Clear and true. Praise Him for His Love.

    Sweet write sis! It kept me focused until the end. I am not sure why the period after me before Still and comma. I feel the word Still completed the ending of the stanza. Over all a superb poem.

    Thank you ccslim. The period indicates a long pause. I might have 'said' sigh, but I try not to inject the 'sighs', the 'selahs' that come to me when I am writing.

    It's nice to read about our Lord. And the poem has excellent rhythmn. And the last line of the poem is very appropriate. Keep up the Good Work.

    I am thankful you took the time to read. 'It' flowed through my fingers in all of about 15 minutes. Our Lord is amazing when we need to hear!

    Observe how one comma eliminates ambiguity of meaning.

    Thank you. I try to use punctuation to give the read the flow as it come to me. Did you like it?

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
