In Solitude – Short Story Slam Week 19

It is in solitude
I come here to pray

“Lord, give me the fortitude
to hold on another day!”

From Him I beg for
the strength to carry on

When the one I did adore
from my life is gone

Everything to him I gave
but he ‘s left me behind

And now only God can save
what is left of my mind

When it’s our love we give
and they throw it away

 Often lost is will to live
steeped in the pain of they

“So, dear Lord, give it back
that I might clearly see

‘Twas not because of my lack
that they have now left me

Give me one who loves me more
with passion’s fire like the sun

On the road ahead before
my life is said and done!”

For all of my suffering friends,
you know who you are,
and I love you each and every one!

    1. thank you! I did that with a few friends in mind who are suffering right now, that’s why it was not one of my lighter hearted poems 🙂 Blessings, Terri


  1. This was wonderful, but sad. A broken home, being left by the one you love, so painful and the healing takes a while. I’m praying for healing for two wonderful friends of mine who’ve gone the exact same thing and that they find someone so much better that they’ll forget about their previous loss.
    Thanks for posting this. Blessings!
