O So Lonely Poem by Cecelia Weir

O So Lonely

Rating: 4.5

O So Lonely
Are the days gone by.
When others enter your life
Then you push them by.

O So Lonely
When you were in control.
To love them or leave them
You were ever so bold.

O So Lonely
While you sit alone.
No one is there
To make your house a home.

O So Lonely
After all the hearts you break.
Did you ever think it was you
Who you'd really forsake?

O So Lonely
When life was just a dare.
You didn't take time to love
You didn't try to care.

O So Lonely
Have you learned the rule?
That its not just about you
But it does take two.

O So Lonely
Why sit and contemplate?
While others enjoy life
Its never too late.

I agree with the poet that when we are young we don't realize how precious our encounters with people truly are. As years roll along, we say goodbye to so many and are left wondering about them, . There's no cure for loneliness, I suppose, but we can buffer ourselves against it by being authentic and loving with others along the way.
