Written by: Eileen Manassian

I go to bed alone; I wake up alone
I eat all my meals in silence
Not another soul at home

I laugh alone; I cry alone
I wonder through these rooms
Imprisoned in my home

I dream alone; I scream alone
I reach out for an embrace
In this bedroom of my home

Alone, alone; I’m tired of being alone
While you travel far from home

Now you sleep beside me, yet I feel so all alone
For in your obliged embrace
My heart is dying....all alone.
