a lonely couple

When your dialogue becomes monologue
and your outstretched arms stay empty
When you notice that your table feeds just one
while others are seating plenty

When you run towards the ones you love
but they run away from you much faster
Don’t despair when you’ve been true to you.
Your happiness you must master.

When you find treasures of this world,
but no one to share them with,
embrace the solitude that you have found
And resolve to maintain bliss.

Friends are those who seek you out
when all others stand aside…
So keep your smile on your face
and your arms outstretched wide.

Don’t despair, around the bend,
Your friends wait there for you
Those who make the time to share your life
are those who love is tested true.
