Sumita Datta


I am alone

I am alone when I get up everyday
I feel startled to think
I have to spend one more day! !

I am alone in breakfast table with my tea,
I try to think positive;
I am alone, and I think I am free…

I am alone when I walk,
There is no one to hold my hand
And walk beside me to take me back…

I am alone when I am happy
I don’t have a friend to share my joy
I feel scared and unsteady

When I dream, I am alone
I see myself sitting in a beach
Playing saxophone

I am all alone in my bed
I know there is nobody to cry
If one fine morning somebody finds me dead…

    Your voice is very clear, truly to speak Everyone on Earth is 'Alone'
    The difference is You do not hear them for they don't have the voice of a Poet.
    Good work.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
