Are You Alone

Are you all alone tonight?
Peace be still till there is light.
And from a man who knows this well,
The sun will shine; the sadness quell.

And if ever you're alone again,
A yellow moon, your only friend--
I'll think of you, and you of me,
Finding solace in the company.

And who can say, perhaps we'll meet
While strolling down some empty street;
And you'll greet me, and I'll greet you,
No longer one, but gladly two.

Hi Jan, who lives in a place I've never heard of. What happened, were you banished there, or what? Kidding. I'm sure it's lovely. I see you've got the Europian spelling of favorites. And it's restaurant, theatre, and so on. Same in Australia, given their strong British background. Btw, you're only the second person to add me to their fav list--or that I know of. Thank you!!!! Luv, Mel :)

Thank you again, Selena. I want you to know that I value your visits and your poems. You and both know loneliness and pain--which makes us better poets, or so I think. C-ya soon. Love and hugs, mel :)

Glad I met you, Casarah. You say the nicest things--Damn, I might open a Starbucks with my poems hanging on the walls. Lots of poems coming your way. Maybe I'll dedicate one to you, my newest, bestest friend. Enjoy that coffee. Hugs // mel

For a new kid on the block - as you introduced yourself to me while commenting on a poem of mine - you're certainly bringing along a lot of talent and you're certainly not on your own here. Glad to meet you and read your poetry as well. Dutch greetings Elly

Thank you Elly, I'm very appreciative. Thanks for the visit, and the kind words. I need all the feedback I can get, as I am too close to my poems to be objective. Sweet of you to drop by. Hope to see you again real soon. Peace ;) mel

Thank you Kim, and I appreciate the comment. Rhyming--which I tend to do--is a risky business. If forced, the poem wont flow smoothly. So, to me, your comment is high praise--and most welcome. Thank you again, Kim. Love ya back, Mel
