Lonely Writer’s Song

Standard

“When my spirit is failing within me,
still, Lord, you know my paths.” ~ Psalm 142:4

The middle of the day
is dead of night to me,
the evening even more;

But Lord, you know my heart,
my mind, my soul; you are near me
upon this desolate shore.

When everything is darkness,
when everyone has fled
and I am left alone,

You, Lord, are my comfort,
the rock
upon which I build my home.

And though you seem to hide,
to forget,
to care not where I go,

Each morning I awake,
I remember,
it is you whom I should love more.

For it is you who brings the morning,
brings the sun
and wakes my soul,

You who lifts my spirit,
calms my mind,
and makes me whole.

  1. This is wonderful! I love the “the middle of the day is dead of night to me the evening even more.” Great writing and flow. I like the shore picking up the sound of more of the previous stanza. I like how the morning comes in at the end and “makes me whole as the ending.” I really enjoyed reading this poem! God Bless!

  2. As I ponder the beauty of these lines, I hear a sweet melody from a song I love dearly, “to you Yahweh I lift up my soul oh God”. My spirit finds refreshment in this.
