Alone in the Garden

Since he preferred to remain unknown He always chose to be company free Because he was happy living alone In the garden he would rest on his throne While sitting underneath a large oak tree Since he preferred to remain unknown He gobbled warm raspberry scones While sipping cups of hot green tea Because he was happy living alone He then noticed a moss covered stone Like him it hid in the windy grass sea Since he preferred to remain unknown At his side he felt the buzz of his phone Reluctant to answer he drank his tea Because he was happy living alone The buzz from his phone he wouldn’t condone Escaped their voice with a sense of glee Since he preferred to remain unknown Because he was happy living alone.

This is a sorrowful poem. That may have been told. Sometimes people find solis in being alone, but it is not the best way to be. There is no love in being alone. So find a way to make that person feel love.
