Theme Thursday for June 12, 2014 - LONELY - June 11, 2014


The sea stretches out forever,
As far as the eye can see,
Waves lapping gently at the shore,
And I'm alone as I can be.

The breeze whispers in the palms,
Making music in my ears,
I am in total solitude,
But I haven't any fears.

Little crabs scurry on the sand,
The sunset warms my heart,
I escape from a crowded, angry world,
To help my healing start.

I find solace all around me,
In the peace and beauty here,
I'm alone but I'm not lonely,
 Worries and problems disappear.
