Lonely People

 

LONELY PEOPLE

Lonely people
Searching for
A friendly face
An open door.

Lonely people
Taking walks
Hoping someone
Stops and talks.

Why does life just pass them by?
Left alone to sit and sigh.
Lonely people often cry.

Lonely people
Sing a song
Of a loved one
Dead and gone.

Lonely people
Marking time
Wishing life
Could be sublime.

Why does life just pass them by?
Left alone to sit and sigh
Lonely people often cry.
