Women Alone

I come here in the quiet time
When others are at rest
It is my time to talk with you
The time that I like best

Today was not so easy, Lord
But oh, you saw me through
It seemed that all was lost until
You showed me what to do

I sit with you in solitude
A woman quite alone
But then I feel your presence near
And your love becomes my home

Your care is full of tenderness
Compassion fills my soul
No bitter cup you give to me
Just strength to keep me bold

I sit here in the starlight
Gazing up at heaven's door
I smile and know I'm not alone
You've filled my heart once more
