For Certain .. Alone
Loneliness settles in as the music dies
It was always there as I closed my eyes
But now the music brings memories
of love and a desperate longing.
Hopeful days lie ahead
that is what they’ve all said
but I’ve lost hope, built walls
I don’t know if I can let anyone in.
The tree sits in the corner abandoned
Family obligations, holidays end.
New beginnings at the New Year
but really can I start again?
There’s no resolution as I sit alone in the dark
My entire life filled with unknowns.
The only truth that is evident is
I’ve always lived life alone.
That has not changed.
There’s no hope that it ever will.
Just how much “alone” is one capable of?
