Lonely Heart


Mine is a lonely heart
And what does it crave?
A company it is yet to find
For how long can it wait?
A day? A year or a decade?

So lean, so weak so pale
And what feed does it take?
Why am I so clueless?
Yet I grieve in my silence

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,
