Let Go and Love

Alone but not lonely, sometimes this is true Lonely but not alone, even when I’m with you We live within a world of our own creation Never altering it of our own volition Taking from each other that which we need Keeping ourselves apart, that is just greed Afraid to open up and completely give Ivory tower dwellers do not really live What is there to fear, why are we so frightened We who always claim to be so enlightened Many lonely people long for a chance like this Someone who will hold them, someone to kiss We come together and then we move apart Afraid to risk the possibility of a broken heart Living like this defies all understanding Searching all of our lives and finally finding A companion and a friend on whom we can rely But not letting love in, not willing to try “Tis better to have loved and lost” We must stop anticipating the cost
