Alone (Poem)

I saw this poem a while back and would like to share it.


Alone, never quite alone,
I face an empty chair.
And sometimes in silence,
I imagine you are there.
The good companion of the
past no longer here with me.
And yet in some mysterious
way you keep me company.
Thought or spirit?
Does it matter?
Words are meaningless.
I only know that in this
moment of greatest loneliness
I feel that you are somewhere near,
though nothing seen or said.
The bitter moment passes, and
my heart is comforted.
Though my loss is grevious
and the future is unknown
I face the years that lie ahead,
alone yet not alone.
