I Like to Be Alone

By Lynne Yohnk

I like to be alone,
the air silent and still.
Where you can hear the wind blow softly
and the sound of the whippoorwill.

I like the solitary way,
and I will tell you why
it is there that I find the secret place
with just my Father and I.

I like to steal away
and be alone with Him
Just He and I and I and He
Away from lifes loud din.

I would stay here forever
Find a cabin on a mountain high
To feel His presence ever
And live there till I die.

But if I did I know
That something would be lost.
I couldn't do the Master's work
I would be selfish, torn and tossed.

So I live for those great moments,
Quiet, lovely and sweet.
Alone with Him and only Him,
Preview of heaven, so neat.

One day then I will be free
And upwards I will fly,
Away from pain and suffering
Into His bosom on high.

Then I will have my hearts desire,
My Lord and I forever,
If a mansion he wants to give me, fine,
I just want a cabin by His river.
