A Lonely Man
Unfounded were his concerns
About the need for ample finances
Marriage to the woman for whom he yearns
To share his life's remaining pages.
So the inevitable became probable
And giving up was the easy option
Goodbyes always hurt loving people
Haunting memories linger like poison.
Now traveling alone he felt lonely
His heart weighed heavy with deep longings
His ambition to be rich and be wealthy
Was accomplished, yet something was missing.
Without his lady love, it was barren
For possessions will never proxy that part.
True Love when lost does not come again
All the things in this world cannot fill the heart.
' A man's life does no consist in the abundance of his possessions, '
LUKE 12: 15
