I stand alone.

I watch now the kids are growen
In their own world they ponder
Looking forward with anticipation
Joy, fear and wonder.

They will be leaving the nest soon
Walking out into a wide space
Taking up lifes challenges
Joining this mad human race

This has been what its all about
Family, love and watching them grow
But now that they are leaving
What to do? I don’t know?

My mother has passed on
My friends have walked away
My partner left long ago
So lonely I feel today

I realise that this time would come
but didn’t realise I would be left behind
If I knew what I know now
I would put this life on rewind

Look back and see where I can change
This path I chose, to change the outcome
So that I would not be alone
And walk with someone… in the sun.

Today I stand alone
Left pondering in thought
I hold fear and loathing in my hands
and bitterness… I have been taught.

I do hope one day soon
To change this hollow life
and although its not everything important
I wish to be someones wife.

I do not ask for money
Or to be put on someones throne
Just for love and understanding
and to not live this life…. standing alone!

I stand alone.
