Lonely Is and Are


Lonely is the pirate ship
that courts the setting sun.
Lonely is the end of quests
when all that's lost is won.
Lonely are the dreams that haunt
the vacant mountain tips.
Lonely are the words of love
that die upon one's lips.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
