Lurkin' In My Loneliness


He has no woman of his own
So every night he walks alone
Although he has no place to go
He's livin in a world so cold
Searchin' for my happiness
Lurkin' in my loneliness
And so and to that lucky day
He looks for her along the way
Although he's livin in dismay
He always finds the time to pray
Searchin' for my happiness
Lurkin' in my loneliness
There's no love to be found
Might as well be underground
My soul was never safe and sound
My body is now in the ground
Searchin' for my happiness
Lurkin' in my loneliness
And although I can't be seen
This all feels like just a dream
Nothing's ever what it seems
No more do I bleed
Searchin' for my happiness
Lurkin' in my loneliness
I see a lost umbrella and a phone
But there's no way to contact home
Still empty with no one to hold
Nobody talks to me I'm a ghost
Searchin for my happiness
Lurkin' in my loneliness

    Some people spend their lives searching for their happiness but I think it's the 'lurking in their lonliness' part that keeps them from finding it. I know many people this poem fits well. Great one. Sincerely, mary (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
