Johannesburg sunset – photograph from google




i stand alone. 




1.



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.




2.



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


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