Alone - Poem by Dale Totten

Alone he wakes to greet each day
Nothing to do, nothing to say
Watching the sun make it's rise
Another day of silent cries

All alone, nothing to hear
The sound of silence, loud and clear
He weeps in lonesome agony
Tears that no one will ever see

Alone he views days gone by
Photos that make him question why
Captured memories, some good, some bad
Thankful for the time they had

Alone and trapped in a maze
No way out, in sorrow he stays
No color anymore, just shades of black
Time can never be turned back
