Although not at all alone, he has many family and friend.
One can still be alone in a room full of people, it was once penned.
Like a scared young boy, lost in the forest dark and deep.
He fears the shadows and the scary creatures that may creep.
The cold dark night seems to ensnare his every thought.
In a cave he shivers, his mind, grief stricken and distraught.
Exhausted, he closes his eyes and finally falls asleep.
His dreams filled with turmoil causes his eyes to weep.
Then someone comes along, seeing the fear in his eyes.
They have been lost before, and know the reason he cries.
They stay with him through the night, because they understand.
Holding him tightly to calm his fears, they hold onto his hand.
As daybreak comes, sunlight pierces the night.
The sun is comforting because it is so bright.
This caring stranger now leads him into the light.
He knows now, that everything will be alright.
Finally safe, he’s not alone any more.
No longer need he fear as he had done before.
And just like the lost boy, I too was lost in the gloom.
Then came a stranger and a friendship started to bloom.
