The poem below was written when my good friend was facing some bleak times in his life. But he came out the other side, I'm extremely happy to say. Lee, mate, you are a champion. Thank you for helping me. Some day, I'll be able to repay your kindness to this lonely heart.

 

Lonely

 

Loneliness is a curse

It strikes at my heart

Wishing

Wondering

Hoping my dreams will come true

 

I feel so lonely

I would that I was not

My heart is sore

Wishing

Wondering

Hoping my dreams will come true

 

I am saddened

Lonely

Alone

Since adulthood I have wanted

Someone to share my life

Wishing

Wondering

Hoping my dreams will come true

 

People try to help

Say your time will come

Usually from the safety of

Their own relationships
Wishing

Wondering

Hoping my dreams will come true.

 

I would that I could

Make my dreams come true

 

 

I canít.
