Lonely Thoughts

by Shai-Inside

Sitting around as the days past me by
Not really aware of whatís around, 
not really caring if lost time could be found
Sitting around asking many questions of why
Like why must I be alone
As others share their love, my heart constantly moans
Havenít I been looking in all the right places
Walking through town but seeing nothing, still the same faces
Sounds of whispers and pointing fingers
All coming at me as though my loneliness lingers
Leaving a scent of emptiness in people filled rooms
As I walk away and the hands of time strike noon
Now half the day has come and gone
And Iím still sitting all alone
And suddenly I see her in my eyes
A reflection from the window, 
the same reflection I see all the time
I can hear her voice loud and clear
As her reflection suddenly disappears
And then it hits me that Iím not by myself
Just waiting for the day to come near, 
all my emotions of her that Iíve  felt
Sheís as real to me as my own flesh and bone
And soon together we will be
My soul mate And I
But for now, I must accept being alone
Until I get to know the real me
