Poem: Year I Find Love

It’s a new year
And hope is in my heart.
Work is good
Productive and fulfilling.
Living in a new house
Not sure it will be a home
But at peace with it
For now.
Faith is stronger than ever.
Health is getting better.
Yet still
I ask myself:
What is it all worth
If my life is without love?
While my life
Seems good
In manifold ways
I am more lonely
Than ever before.
And love
Seems further away
Than it has in a long time.
I cry out the Lord
Every night
Pleading for strength
For guidance.
I know not
How much longer
I can keep fighting
If I stand alone.
The Lord answers me
In still small voice
That I am not alone.
That all happens
In its proper time.
That I am stronger
Than I know.
That I will always go on
Because I am who I am.
As so I sigh
Keep holding on
Choosing hope
Love and faith.
Trusting the Spirit
To guide me true.
Hoping that this year
Will be the year I find love.
