Lonely


separation

 

Lonely – what is lonely?

It’s only – yes, it’s only

A selfish, selfish feeling

That happens – yes, it happens

When you’re reeling. You’re reeling

From a sense of great desertion

When there’s no outside coercion

To take a part in Life.

You haven’t got a husband

You haven’t got a wife

There’s no help to bear the burden

Of this world’s daily strife.

You sit alone and read alone

Every evening – well, most evenings.

And you wonder – yes you wander

Why you’re on the verge of tears

For your mind is full of fears

Of what may come tomorrow

And all you feel is sorrow

For the hopes you had of living

A full and happy life

With a husband or a wife.

When next you feel like crying

Let the tears flow – don’t be trying

To hold them back inside.

Let them flow – mouth open wide

Have a bawl – ease the pressure

Let Life see you’ve got it’s measure.

You can cope with work and leisure

As it comes along your way

Each and every single day.

Then, when you feel you’re in control

Climb back out from you’re self-made hole.

Climb back up to that first promise

Of Love and Life and Light.

Be aware of the seen and seeing

Give thanks to God that you have the might

To cope with all that happens
