me alone


“Jardin a Eragny” Pissarro


“Let me alone,
For my days are but a breath”
Job 7:16

Let me alone, passing time
For I have so much more to
Ponder and to absorb –
To wonder about things forward
And reflect on things aft.

Let me alone, eroding wind
For I am shielded in godliness
A true and unique
Creation of God –
There is joy in my heart.

Let me alone, wretched noise,
Cacophonous thoughts
And opinions and words
That attempt to clog every artery,
But resistant are mine.

Embrace me now,
Father of all life
No less mine
As I lovingly remember
Your loving heart.
