Lonely

Lonely
on darkened hill a willow stands
limbs hang scraping the earth
as if trying to dig a hole to
escape

lonely
as the lamb or calf stand in the paddocks
in the fierceness of winter hail and rain
their coats saturated from the
rain

lonely
the broken-hearted woman
with so much love to share
sits alone at her table and dines by
herself

lonely
the father who waits for the
fortnightly visits from his children
wanting to hear laughter hold them
close

lonely
the animal in the shelter hoping
that someone will pass by and take him
away from the four x 6 cage that he lives
in

lonely
the dreamer who aspires to be grand
yet lives his life thinking that he is
not worthy of being noticed he has nothing to
give

lonely
the writer for their voice are words
placed upon paper hoping that thoughts felt
deep within will be recognised and there meaning
known
