“Alone Yet Never Quite Alone”

Alone yet never quite alone
I face an empty chair
But sometimes in the silence
I imagine you are there

The good companion of the past
No longer here with me
And yet in some mysterious way
You keep me company

Thought or spirit?
Does it matter?
Words are meaningless
I only know that in my times
Of greatest loneliness
I felt that you are somewhere near
Though nothing’s seen or said
The bitter moment passes
And my heart is comforted

I receive the strength I need
Am rescued from despair
Maybe that’s the way God works
The answer to a prayer
