All Alone

Take refuge in my arms
Your weary soul retreating
I'll calm your raging storms
You can't tell me you'd rather be all alone

The mountains with their mystic grandeur
Speak out to you in gilded voices
Enticed you may just answer
Afterall you'd rather be all alone

Tell me something my would-be-lover
Would you turn and run if I kissed you
Here I am giving you forever
But you seem to like it all alone

Fate must really have it in for me
Placing my happiness, in the form of you, within my grasp
Have I ever told you I find your entire being the epitome of beauty?
And yet you still yearn to be all alone

So with you here I'm standing undercover
The darkness of solitaire permeates our hearts
Can't you see I'm giving you forever?
But you wanna be all alone
Why do you need to be all alone?
I hate it when you're all alone.

Beautifully done, Pattie! So sad when someone that we want doesn't want us

Thanx, and yes it is sad; but more like emotionally crippling. Especially if that person is your best friend, and so much apart of your life. But alas, that is life. As they say s*** happens. Thanks again.

I feel the sadness of not being able to understand why one, so loved would prefer to be alone.  Often I see them as a mountain of fear...either afraid of a hidden truth emerging or so insecure, they're afraid of accepting.  That's sad, but I know some who'll constantly deny you love them regardless how much you do or reassure them.  Be careful.

I can't understand at times either, yet my love for him grows ever still. One day, perhaps one day, we can be together, or I will find the strength to move on. Yet for now I am content to love for the sake of loving him fully, and to know, despite it all he does truly love me back, if only in his own way.

     thanx, pattie
