   Another day gone, noone to call my own
   nightly hours spent, mostly alone
   meeting strangers with empty faces
   looking for love in all the wrong places

   hoping for the day, praying to find
   someone with passion and a heart that's kind
   a willing soul to trust and to share
   bad with the good, always being there

   Is it a dream, what i'm looking for?
   or a reality, not just another score
   a hand to hold, seeing with kind eyes
   willing to be there to watch the moon rise

   must i play the game, follow the rules
   and march in step with other loveless fools
   why me, why should anyone care?
   for my lonely heart with a soul to bare

   Is it asking too much, to share our dreams
   in an untrusting world, to few takers it seems
   so on with the game, make the right moves
   who knows, it's time my luck improves

   now i'm out the door on my earthly quest
   seeking an angel's touch, and a place to rest
   and if you hear, what my heart has to say
   may i have this dance, dreams come what may

This poem is very sad seeing your lonliness crying out in it. I believe there truly is someone out there for everyone, and I hope yours is close to being found. You did a nice job on this poem, I enjoyed it.

Never give up, Danny. They say it happens when we stop looking...Don't know for sure, but keep your spirits up!

Nicely done!

Oh how true the words you write. Sometimes the search may be long and lonely but when you find "the one to call your own" you will relize the search was well worth it.

Many thanks to all who have responded with your kind and concerned comments.  I'm not as lovelorn now as this poem would seem.
I realize there is a lot of poetry posted each day in Passions and we have just so much time and can't read everything.  I appreciate each of you who have chosen to read mine.  I have added names to my Christmas list.  
best wishes to all, and now off to read your poems.

You know, I think the love bug is smarter than we give him credit for.  It seems he makes us wait until we're near miserable to send someone special our way....I think there's a reason for that.  If love were around every corner, we wouldn't appreciate it so much when it is in our lives.  We would start to take it for granted, and it wouldn't be so special to us....you know?  When you're starving, a mere piece of bread tastes darn good!    Pass me a loaf, would ya?

I am so amazed coming across this poem on page
You've taken words from hearts abound
That feel the same sometimes these days

I'm glad I found this one Danny, well written indeed  
A few people have said it and I've found it to be true.... Love will find you when you least expect it. I don't know HOW it works, but it seems to. Maybe it's to do with attitude... if you're so busy looking for love, then you don't see the actual person and don't relax enough about them? just a theory *shrug*

Best wishes,
Eric.

Danny~ this is an excellent poem! I have quite a few that sound a lot like this..... of course that was a long time ago for me. I felt like I peeked into your heart on this one. Very well done!   -SEA

( am I on your list now too?) (jk)
