Loneliness is a feeling

that is so hard to accept.

It gnaws at you for a lifetime

no matter how hard you try to forget.

You hope someone will understand,

But no one does.


The pain it causes is unbearable.

Only if you knew how much it hurts!


All I ask for is one mere favor.

Just a friend,

someone who cares,

someone who loves,

someone who will give me strength.

How I need this.


My dreams for a friend are always shattered.

But I swear,

if ever fulfilled,

you will see me with an outstretched hand


I am ready now to experience

something I have craved for so long.

If it takes a fight

to get over this dreadful feeling,

I am ready…I am waiting


Just let me get knocked down,

And watch me get right back up.

I will still fight

Fiercely and determined

Bruised and injured,

I will never give up.


Here I am.

Just maybe,

Just maybe

if I shed enough tears,

I might look and notice,

there will be someone at my side.

Someone who really cares,

who understands,

who loves me.


How excited I get at this thought.

A dream it may sound to be,

But if it is,

I beg of you,

Please do not wake me up!
