The loss of a loved one...

I Am Alone...

by Margaret Snowdon

Lonely Poem Contest Winner 

I am alone –

  so lonely in my woe, for sorest hearts
               are most serenely sad, and there is grief
 from which tears cannot flow,
                              though the crushed soul

                                     in darkest thought is clad.
        Smiles may not hide,
                  and mirth may never mask
  the death-dark features of the grief I bear,
       and would the world,

                                            in jest or pity, ask where
             lay the secret

                of this calm despair, I would point out
       the grave, and answer - there!
