It seems a day--
Or years--
Ago,
When lazy water
Gurgled low
Across the sun-baked
Silver stones
To fold in pools
Of white-washed bone,
That I first noticed
I was alone.

And what else could
I do, but laugh,
And chisel out
My epitaph
Upon the face
Of swirling sky,
Where timid echoes
Breed and die,

And there are
No such fools as I...

Good poem, but know your never alone if you walk with God.

EXCELLENT!!! This poem works wonderfully. You should be quite proud of yourself with this one. I love the imagery, the tone, the thought and especially the flow like that water you speak of....softly flowing but crashing thoughts upon this rock of a mind of mine. Absolutely loved this piece!

Thanks for your comments. It's always nice to read them...

I'll resist the temptation, CSwtThng, to respond the the comment about God, except to say that I truly believe in my heart that the person who believes that God walks with them is the most alone of all.
