So Alone! - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

So alone in my bed
Alone listening to nightly whispers
Alone in my thoughts
Alone standing in court
Alone I stand and fight
Alone I pray for rainbow lights

Alone in the morning I awake
Alone I celebrate my joys
Alone I cry out my sadness
Alone I voice out my fears
Alone in strenght

Alone in wealth
Alone in good health
Alone I try to understand
Alone I seek knowledge
Alone I share what is mine
Alone I try not to be alone
Alone when my time has come, I pass away

    It really hurts to be alone. Loneliness always wants a friend. You aptly described being alone. I know no one wants or likes to be alone. Good! (Report) Reply

    Alone I recited this poetry
    Then loneliness gave round of applause
    At that moment I knew I ‘m not alone


    Sweet poem Sylvia.

    Lovely poems Sylvia. Sometimes I wonder what the one we lost does
    instead of writing poetry. Are we the winners?
