It Is Not Enough To Be Alone - Poem by Shalom Freedman

It is not enough to be alone
To have one's own time
One's own small pleasures
It is not enough-

We need the others
I need them-

Alone and only alone
I am forever lost
My wife, my children, my grandchildren, my family my friends
So many people I know
I need you all-

You are my world
And without you
Only alone
I am afraid, lost
Nothing.
