Life Without Love

Poems about Life

Lord I'm So Lonely
Greta Zwaan, © 2006

Lord, I'm so lonely, it's so quiet here; my family's all gone and no one lives near.
My life's not at all what I had expected; I feel so left out, I feel so rejected.
When I was younger I had such great dreams; I had things all planned, my head full of schemes.
But I was so busy with so much to do; I paid no attention to thoughts about You.

"When I am older," I always would say, "I'll think of religion, I even might pray."
But now my attention is geared for success; I'm up for promotion, I'm under great stress.
I want this position, I want to achieve; when I'm not so busy I'll try to believe.
But time passed by quickly, the days disappeared, and all my achievements were never revered.

I've never reached the praise that I sought, it seems that my efforts were all for naught.
I gave all I had to a self-centered life, and all it returned was hardship and strife.
Now that I've come to the point where I see all of these dreams did nothing for me;
I fear that my time, which was not well spent, has taken its toll, it's too late to repent.

Now, all alone, not a friend or a kin remembers my name because of my sin.
My sin? Self absorbent, neglecting their need, no time for involvement because of my greed.
And Lord, How I hurt! To the depths of my heart. I'd give all I own to make a new start!
I'd make time for friends, spend time in prayer, asking forgiveness, seeking Your care.

Can You forgive me? A life filled with pride? Can You still use me when You've been denied?
Will You allow me,what's left of my days, to belong to Your family, to sing of Your praise?
And God, in Your mercy, could You send me a friend? So this lonely feeling might come to an end?
I'm not deserving, I depend on Your grace; I thank You for caring and hearing my case.
Thanks for forgiveness, for patience with me, for Your tender goodness, for setting me free.

Life Without Love
, (c) 2011
Life can be busy,
and somewhat uneasy,
But there are things that can make it great.

Having love in your life,
just a brother even a wife,
Can make all the difference to fate.

Love can lend you a hand,
when you need to withstand,
Some of the harder things in life.

But love can also soften,
every so often,
When your dealing with life's bigger strife.

We know love can sometimes be,
hard to obtain thee,
But not all love needs romance to be any.

The love of a father,
a mother a daughter,
Is a love that would satisfy many.

So allow love in your lifetime,
and give it more than a dime,
For love is worth much more to one man.

At first you might not see it,
but it really much needed,
As life without love is never the plan.
