Alone

There were colorful lights and people singing

Santa’s in windows

And popcorn stringing

I spent Christmas alone.

 

News years came and bells were ringing

Promises made and children singing

Skyrockets flashing across the sky

Helping to hide the tears in my eye

I spent New Year’s alone.

 

My birthday rolled in

As it does every year

Some seem to notice

But most didn’t care

I spent my birthday alone.

 

We come in and go out of this world on our own

I’ve had plenty of practice at being alone

But still at night as the north wind moans

It scares me to think

With my eyes final wink

I’ll still be alone.

For What They Bring.

I love old things

For what they bring

Memories of those that touched them

And now are gone.

They loved them long before

My name was known,

Then they touched me

And now are gone.

The pain wounds the heart

But I still love old things

For what they bring.
