All around I see

Love and friendship thrive.

Lonely as usual

   Am I in my world.

   Long hours I wait

   Oh, to be touched

   Never by rays of sunshine.

   Every time it seams

I am to be shined upon

Now come the heaviest rains.

   My heart shattered more

   Yearning  constantly for relief.

Why is it this way?

Only misery seams to be

Relentlessly my companion.

Love hides from my eyes.

Don’t you see?

   Oh how it taunts me.

   Facing me when only

Pain can be the end result.

All my heart can take

It has been given and more.

Now I slip away once again,

   Into my world of seclusion

Alone in my pain

Maybe to heal a little.
