Alone


Alone..... what a heart-wrenching word,
Alone..... empty space all around,
Spinning alone on a revolving orb,
No one's making a sound


Alone..... drifting on restless waves,
Alone..... on a stormy sea,
The desperate hours of loneliness
Attack relentlessly

Alone..... time to ponder it all,
Alone..... now the questions form,
Why did the captain abandon ship?
My boat drifts alone in the storm

Alone..... no one in the temple,
Alone..... not a prayer being said,
The Lord has closed his eyes and his ears,
Did someone say he was dead?

Alone..... I carry the burden,
Alone..... I stumble through it all,
Not a spirit nor an angel abides.....
No one to see when I fall

Alone..... if there should be laughter,
Alone..... if there should be tears,
Intertwined with innumerable threads....
It's the sum of all my fears

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
