An old companion
Never really a friend
Comes to mind now and then
In some days gone by
It was an ever present reminder
Of isolation and uncertainty
For hours on end
Thoughts would bend
To fill the current void
Nowhere for heartache to send
The longing for someone missing
The ache of being alone
The love to give
That had nowhere to go
Hours gone by
With only a sigh
And a longing to hold something true
Down through the days
The lonely one prays
For a blessing of someone
To become a wonderful known one
Months, maybe years,
With no place to put tears
No balance for fears
And hope a misty reminder
The mind reaches out
But with no one about
To have and to hold
Can be found here
