Three Sealed as One

My secret lover was Solitude,

How I longed for you!

Refuge from the multitude…

Time to think it through…

In your arms lay in gratitude;

My! How time flew!

Love greater than platitude,

Without you I am blue;

In silence of love interlude,

As my affections grew,

For you I developed aptitude,

I decided to marry you!

 

My abusive husband is Isolation,

Solitude’s darker side;

Imprisonment, lonely degradation,

Jealousy, lover’s pride!

Alone, l lay in arms of trepidation;

Afraid to step outside,

Of his barred door interpretation,

Within tiny cell I abide;

Bars made by fear’s imagination!

Terrorized, hellish ride!

Silence hurts ears, brings agitation,

Solitude sold me a lie!

 

It isn’t good for man to be all alone;

Neither for a woman;

In solitude, the voice of God intone;

Isolation, evil demon!

Banished! In right relationship sown;

A man and a woman;

Sealed as one, kneel at God’s throne,

Three-ply Helmsman!

What God puts together not blown,

Cannot be undone!

God remains, even if death is known;

God and I are one.

 

 

 

 

 

Joy for the Lost and Lone!

Silence roars within the souls of the lost and lone!

Deafening white noise eradicates rational thought;

Obliterates imagination; Rosy ideals end in a moan!

Wealth, worldly greatness, nothing can be bought,

To satisfy the empty, stark realization of soul alone;

No solace from mankind, nothing mankind taught,

Prepares the lost soul for standing naked to atone!

In this the reckoning hour, earthy things matter not!

Realize separation from the Living God and groan!

Understand eternal loneness; with torment fraught!

In this quiet moment choose not to die in the lone!

Grasp the proffered Hand of the One you’ve fought!

Grace- Love-Life! Be ye not lost! Be no longer alone!

Still Voice whispers, “I Am here!” Bind in Faith’s knot!

Holy Spirit, enter the heart! Joy for the lost and lone!

Redeemed through Jesus, by His Holy blood bought!

Jesus won’t leave souls given Him to suffer the lone!
