Loneliest Hour

I listen, content to hear raindrops from an anguished sky pour out. My darkest hour of night is just a fragment of one day, only a fragment of a fleeting life; but an ending to grief, I somehow doubt. If I live through nights void of love, not alone but lonely, (for there is a difference) I will dream of your face and wake happily. For Broken Wing's Fragment of Life Contest, 2/23/16

Congratulations on your win! There is a big difference between alone and lonely for sure. Such sadness in lonely. Well done. PS (Title - Is it Lonelist or Loneliest?)
