When I was just lad
It became quite clear to me
To go through life mostly alone
Would be my destiny

Others did not understand
Nor could I explain
The feelings I had in my heart
The thoughts within my brain

Try and try I couldn't fit
A smart but awkward youth
Deep inside I hurt, I cried
But still remained aloof

No young lovers, no fast friends
Acquaintances I had few
I played no sports, joined no clubs,
Alone I grew and grew

A young adult in college now
New classes and new faces
Things changed but stayed the same
Alone, just in new places

Adulthood then and time to start
Finding my place in life
I thought that meant I had to have
A house, a job, a wife

So those things I went to seek
And those things I did find
Unfortunately I chose
Not with heart but with my mind

Thirteen years and two kids later
I am getting a divorce
I stop to wonder where I am
Alone again, of course

Introspection, self appraisal
I pray and meditate
Then the day that I met you
My soul had found my mate

Throughout my life I have spent
Most of my time alone
But that's all behind me now
With you, I found my home

(To be continued...)
Life is for living...
