All Alone


From the cooing sound of a contented baby
To the calm breathing of an aged grandmother
I watch and ponder from a distance
Alone sitting by the ocean of life
All alone I came here
All alone I shall die
All alone I dance to the music of life
All alone I ponder with my thoughts
Wishing I had you to talk with
So near yet so far away
Alone I light a candle
Alone I play a song
Alone I take a walk of faith
Alone I meditate on my own accomplishments
It is a poor hen that will not crow in her own nest
Alone I am living life to its fullest.
