Lonely But Beautiful

Flower Petal DSCF0849

How often does the road seem lonely,

Yet, the sadness of alone settles somehow;

Making its case gradually into reflection,

And then into beauty.

Holding the lonely word in both head and heart,

As the absence of you becomes a presence,

And remembrance of times spent together,

Floods in love and enjoins our spirits.

Until beauty emerges again,

Eclipsing all sadness.
