When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?
Loneliness is a foe to be kept at bay
It can lead one to acute despair
You have to keep it banishing everyday
With books to read, and works you prefer
Sometimes succeeding, other times not
You can’t give in to what you fear
What I do is to keep myself busy
With good thoughts, and my daily prayers
Then there is my God, who watches over me
He buoys me up, and keeps me in good cheer
