Poems about Loneliness

We probably made all our decisions together. To suddenly be alone after intense togetherness is a very lonely feeling.

I miss the times when you were here
telling me to have no fear
To hold my head up high and strong

The sun is setting, going to sleep,
The dark surrounds, like the ocean deep,

The stars come, twinkling …
