The Traveler Poem by Abdul-Ali Muhammad

The Traveler

Rating: 4.0


Lonely is The Traveler, who travels all alone
Lonely is the Traveler, who is without a home
Lonely is the Traveler, who has no one to care
Lonely is the Traveler, who has no one to share
The Lonely Traveler is oh so sad--
The Lonely Traveler gave all the tears he had
The Lonely Traveler is the guardian of the love, hope and dreams
Oh so it seems--
Now the world will have to pay for The Traveler goes away--
For no one would listen--no one paid attention to the warnings
The Traveler had
I'm but a Lonely Traveler who travels space and time
The warnings I gave were not new nor were they mine.
They came from another time.
