Prayer Answered


She married out of loneliness
True love she's never known
She was so afraid
Of growing old alone

Her lonely days behind her
At least she has someone
She married out of loneliness
Even if her life isn't fun

He said, he loved her
He wanted her for life
So when he asked her
She agreed to be his wife

He's in love and happy
She is now satisfied
Two lives brought together
Anything can be justified

She married out of loneliness
Now she's lonely no more
But she may end up more lonely
Then she ever was before

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
