It's Hard - But Just Think!

It’s Hard - - But Just Think!

I’m tired of being by myself,
“Distanting” -  six feet apart.
I feel like I’ve been put on the shelf,
Makes me lonely - breaks my heart!  

While on the phone , I’m repeating,
Saying things I’ve told before.
“Touching base” with some I’m seeking,
Like it was in days of yore.  

Some do what they want to anyway,
Spread whatever germs attack,
Think it’s more fun to laugh and play,
Throw all reason  far, far back.

I read, exercise, watch TV.
I’ve washed , cleaned and “put away.”  
I need to think how life will be
When Christ comes for me -  glad day!

I know His great love in my heart.
He’ll guide and bless ev’ry day!
From my Lord I’ll not be apart
Though hard times come on the way.  


“The Lord is my strength and my shield. My heart trusts in Him
And I am helped.  Therefore, my heart exults. And with my
Song I shall thank Him.”    Psalm 28:7
