I’m lonely on my own

Ghost-Soldiers 2

 

“The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.” ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

Come sit awhile and chat with me, I’m lonely on my own.

I think I lost my way and now I’m far from home.

It’s cold and damp and always bleak

And the others are too shocked to speak

Come sit awhile and chat with me, I’m lonely on my own

It’s not a place for the faint of heart, and none of us wanted to depart

I’m not afraid, my fears are gone, nothing left to look upon

Pull up a chair and say you care and tell me I’m not alone

Come sit awhile and chat with me, I’m lonely on my own

Watch the poppies blowing in the breeze, Come and sit please.

    1. Thank you Ethel for your comments. I think this particular week as we come closer to Remembrance Sunday poppies are on my mind and when I think of them blowing in a field far away, loneliness associates with it.🙂

    Bravo Susan. An emotional and touching poem that makes one appreciate the plight not only of soldiers in the field but also the many people who feel the isolation and personal loneliness that life sends their way. Thank you for sharing this exquisite poem. Hugs.
