Loneliness

Here is a friend of mine
Who loves to be with me,
Whose company so sublime
I’m a true friend of thee…

No ear I find to tell my sorrow
No heart to soothe, I find,
Only you’re with me in worry
In adversities of every kind.

When friend becomes enemy
Near and dear ones go away,
You are the consoler of mine
A harmless soul in all the way.

Become friend with thy heart
Is an art so hard to learn,
If loneliness becomes my mate
Nothing more I need to earn.

When the intolerable treachery
Betrays the heart of mine,
You alone, only alone can be
A friend, so true and sublime.
