Johannesburg sunset – photograph from google

i stand alone. 


i stand alone, though never lonely,

she rests within me, and ’tis with  her i long to be.

i stand alone,

though hardly disconsolate,

she sprinkles colour deep within me, a dazzling rainbow for me to see.

i stand alone,

at rest and with hope,

her soul caressing my edginess, her memory a soothing balm helping me to cope.

i stand alone,

her heart a part of mine,

our emotions are one, bound by tight twine.


i do not stand alone, for we stand side by side,

our love in tune, with the coming in of the tide …
