Treasure Island

Lonely


Lonely am I, lonely are the nights
Lonely are the days as they quickly fade
Lonely am I in this cold weather
Lonely feels the winter, and my life as a blur
I tried to see the light in my darkest nights
But I'm blind and nothing can make it alright
I tried to create relationships
To help me face the hardship
But they proved to be shallow and not so deep
And became links I refuse to keep
So, lonely am I chasing my dreams
Lonely am I responding to life's realm
The winter snow all in my heart
I did not choose to set myself apart
But getting used to my own company
Actually brings out the best of me
The world has come to melt my heart to stone
But if it's what it takes to make it on my own
Then I prefer being alone
So, lonely am I, lonely are the nights
Lonely are the days as they quickly fade

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
