Loneliness

The day is dark but the sun shines
The house is cold but the fire is on 
The stars are out but you don’t see them
This is what loneliness is

The book is a best seller but you can’t read the words
The story is good but you can tell no-one
You made a fantastic meal but there’s no-one to share it
This is what loneliness is

The bed is too large you have to much space
The joke is funny but who do you tell
You are in a crowded room but you are alone
This is what loneliness is.

    this is very good, Mandy, though I have to disagree with a few of these. I LOVE a big bed all to myself.hmmm, I actually enjoy about half these things even when alone. I think I am a more solitary person than most!!!

    Dear Mandy, Congratulations, Have YOU been peeking into my life or do we share the Loneliness together, except if we share Loneliness then we are not alone. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Brother...Harry

    I think the refrain says it all. This is touching indeed, I agree with Sharon. Such a pleasure to stop by your marvelous work today. Hugs. :)

    Hello Mandy, This has touched my heart, So true and real are your words. I thought I saw my late husband the other day, this man looked so much like him. I followed him in the mall just so I could watch him walk away...That is what my loneliness has done for me. your words are beautiful dear poet. Lov, Shar

    Hi, Mandy, you've expressed what loneliness is excellently - no one to share aspects of your life with- well penned.

    This seems to be lyrics to a sad country song.........it longs for soft, sad guitar music. Well done!
