Never Alone

by Joan Westaway
(Brisbane QLD Australia)

I read this!
Oh, how my spirit did sweet somersaults!
Awesome wordsmithing!
I read it again with a whole lot more joy skips!
Then came the words of the song. Read them. Then the link to the song. I clicked, closed my eyes and listened. Never going back! No! I’m home… and by the time the song finished, the words of my response were clamouring to be written! Like right now! And so I share my heart response…

*Never Alone...

I’m never alone
No longer alone
I’ve come home
Come home
To you

You fold your arms around me
Closely you enfold me
Lovingly you hold me
Wipe away my tears
Stains of dried old tears
From all of yesterday’s years

Fresh flowing tears
Washing away the sorrows
Preparing for all the tomorrows
Yet to come
Joy has come
Love has come
As you caress me

The softness of your touch
Sweetness of your breath
As you hold me close
So glad I am home
Never alone
I am home with you
With you
