Friendless - Poem by Margaret Hankins

I'm all alone in the depths of despair,
I look around but no-one is there,
No-one to give me the comfort I need,
No-one to listen, no one to heed. I really feel the need for a friend,
Someone to stay with me till the end
For I feel that my life is slipping away,
And theres no tomorrow only today. Just to tell someone of the sorrows I bear,
To enlighten my heart to someone who'll care,
But when the night falls and I'm still here alone,
I'll close my eyes to this life of my own. With my very last breath I will whisper goodbye,
To no-one particular for theres no-one to cry,
For my passing away so this is really the end,
Things could have been different if I'd had a friend
