Loneliness
knocks, then
comes in
and stays

Fearing a future
without ones
who care

No one
to pat a hand,
smile,

and do with kindness
whatever
needs doing

No family
or nearby friends
What then?

The only path~
love and give
now

  1. A lovely lyrical approach — how we melt our future fears by loving and giving in the present. Filling up the container now because tomorrow, the future, is like a mythical creature constantly receding yet taunting us with illusions of control.
