Cynthia BuhainBaello (November 17,1949 / Manila, Philippines)
I've Been Alone
I've been alone for so long
I learned to live with it.
Sadness does not have me owned
Nor Happiness, forfeit.
I like the peace and freedom here-
The absence of dispute
Unchained from all the dreary tears,
Enjoy this solitude.
I don't know where Aloneness leads
Perhaps in time, will bid goodbye
When Life is over, to rest indeed
Alone in the graveyard there I lie.
