Lonely Night


My heart is running dry
There's not a shoulder to cry
Everyone's a stranger tonight
It's such a lonely night

Lonely are the stars, lonely the night
A lonely cloud wanders, silently it cries
It's raining tears tonight
It's such a lonely night

The waves washed away my sandcastles
The eerie darkness holds me in shackles
Even my shadows desert me tonight
It's such a lonely night

So far are you, that you can't hear my cries
My heart doesn't beat anymore, yet it never dies
I bleed alone, not a soul in sight
It's such a lonely night

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
