True Friend

Loneliness- you never left my side,
From me you never did hide.
Whether did surge or ebb the tide,
By me you always lied.
Whether alone or not,

Your presence has never been in doubt.
Whether spring or fall,
You have been with me through it all.
Whether a smile or frown,
You have been always around.

Whether life was up or down,
You never did me renoun,
True, whatever turns did life take,
You are a friend unfake.
Then how am I alone, how am I lonely?

So true RV...

Indeed, loneliness is just around the corner, seem never to leave us, just pops in when it wants to!

beautifully written! liked it so much!

nice rhyme scheme ... i think for many of us there is an element of loneliness that will always be there ... and, maybe that's not such a bad thing.

Loneliness can be a constant companion at times...I really enjoyed your poem and it's unique perspective.
