Just a Minute Alone – A Poem

I have but just a minute to write these words

to whom

I do not know

nor do I care.

Just a minute alone

with my thoughts

dangerous

and the desires of my heart.

Just a minute alone

what shall I do?

Pray

for those I will soon see.

Just a minute alone

to wonder what they are like

where they are coming from

and what they will become.

Just a minute alone

to thank God

for each one of them

and their hearts.

Just a minute alone

could have been bad

could have been sad

could have.

Just a minute alone

to think about who I am

who I need to be

for those whose paths cross mine.

Just a minute alone

is already too much.

False.

Just a minute alone

I cannot be alone.

Lies.

Just a minute alone

is something praiseworthy

for God knows my heart

and knows my need to be loved by Him.
