Loneliness Is The Worst Friend

When time seems without an end; Loneliness makes the very worst friend.

When the one you've loved is now gone; it's often with tears you greet each dawn.

Then as through those old photos you look; you see your life an open book.

Look how silly we were back then and your eyes smiled so deeply within.

Christmas comes but in a much different way and to say you miss them, is not enough to say.

Each meal is prepared for just one not two and you pray another night to make it through.

That favorite song just began to play but the words were there with none to say.

Suddenly you thought it was they you heard down the hall but found again a vacant wall.

The song of your life keeps playing along but the music now is just all wrong.

You've taken blows before but never this strong and you've been hurt in the past but never this long.

Those old photos are the memories and the trophies in your life and will help you find joy while in this strife.

Blame yourself no more for that you didn't say or do but thank God for the joys, He with loved ones led you through.

Today you will make it and you will come through because you know loneliness is the very worst friend you ever knew.

Your life is not just the memories but is now today and you will face it with strength brand new and in a brand new way.

Written by Bob Wood

Matthew 5:1 .. And seeing the multitudes, he went up into the mountain: and when he had sat down, his disciples came unto him: 2 .. and he opened his mouth and taught them, saying, 3. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6. Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 8. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 9. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God. 10. Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11. Blessed are ye when men shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets that were before you. 13. Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under foot of men. 14. Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15. Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house. 16. Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

It seems this is a lonely world. I have found sometimes you can be most lonely even in a crowd. It seems some of the most lonely are those that have found love but seems to have been stolen away. It could be a friend, a family member and for sure can be your husband or your wife. Maybe they have left you or maybe they died. We try not to say they died but they did. Some will say you will get over it but I am here to tell you that you will not. I am glad we will never get over the love we have shared. God will however as you allow Him to take control begin to mend this very broken heart. He will gently and slowly in His own way, tenderly replace the shattered pieces. He's the only one that has the assembly instructions. There will be scars and tender spots for a very long time. So go ahead from time to time and get those old photo albums out. You may even have a good cry and you may even find a long lost smile. Thank God for the love you've shared and for the love and life your sharing today. Don't be ashamed of the tears but also thank God for the smiles He lends each and everyday. You may feel dark right now but you are God's child and a creature of the Light. Ask God to return the sunnyside of life again so you can keep shining. May God Really Bless You! Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance; you pray for me.
