Alone/ alone and all all alone








(This poem was written by a close friend of mine)

And once I knew a certain someone
Who stood alone/ alone and all alone
And though he had many a friends
It always looked like he was making amends
And once I knew a certain someone
Who stood by corners all day long
And when the night would stir along
He would sing his woe-filled song
And once I knew a certain someone
Who saw right through a persons lie
But what the others didn’t know
Was that his was lie that would never show
And once I knew a certain someone
Who conquered all that he came across
But little did he know just then
Someone was coming to conquer his den
And do once I knew a certain someone
Who believed in all but him
But when she came passing by
He was elated but didn’t know why
Once I knew a certain someone
Who smiled at every word I said
But possession took the better of him
And guilt but filled him to the brim
And once I knew a certain someone
Who took his last breath and cried to me
‘I loved to the I could
And gave you the best of what I am’
And now I know certain someone
Who stood alone/ alone and all all alone
Thinking many may come and many may go
But this dream will live on forever
And so now I know a certain me
Who’s under a mask that no one can see
But little as they know I’m alone as can be
Alone, alone all all alone and the world to see
Now I know a certain me
Whose just as alone as me
