A Dark And Dreary Night


On a cold, dark and dreary night,
being by yourself, isn't a delight!
You hate the thought, of being
alone, as anxiously, you await,
for someone to phone. Just to be
able, to hear another persons
voice, would give you reason, to
rejoice! It's not conducive, to be
by yourself, when darkness, will
fall. There's nobody there, at all!
It would be great, to have some
good conversation, just another
person, to talk to. Instead, here
you are, all alone and feeling,
kind of blue! Some people, enjoy
being alone, but alas, it's not for
me. I'd rather have someone close
at hand, someone, who's good
company!
