By Kelli J Gavin

It is only us

The lonely that is

Only the lonely they say

The ones that will

Always show up

Will include others

Will love others

Will serve others

Never expecting anything in return

Desperate to connect

To find something in common

To create what is desired

To discover something amazing

Something that is life changing

Something nourishing

Something complete

Something that lasts

Longer than the last

Please let it be

Longer than the last

No longer lonely

I do not wish to be

The one that is lonely

That one that shows up

The one that loves and serves

Someone love me



Only the lonely
