Asma Khan


Lonely


I am a lonely person
I have many people around me
But the feeling of loneliness
Its deeply seated in me

The birds are chirping
I can hear the voices
My kids are chatting around
But I feel lonely, I am a lonely
person.

To subside the feeling
I mingle with my kids
Playing with them for a while
Making them laugh.

Then again I feel lonely
Its my inner feeling
I am a lonely person
like a lonely tree in the desert.
I am a lonely person!

    I can understand the feeling, but believe me this feeling is temporary. A time comes when this person who feels lonely becomes the ray of hope for others. And then that is a very good feeling. You'll never feel lonely after that.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:

Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
