POEM: "Alone"

By Aaron Giddens

Why do I feel alone?
I have friends.
I have family.
I have God.
I am not truly alone.

But is there a girl?
No there is no girl.
There is no girl to make me
feel loved on an intimate level.

There is no one that is there for
me as a life partner.

Where is my “The One“?
My heart longs for her.
But she is no where to be found.

As I stare up and the moonlit sky.
I have no one to share the moment with.

And as I lay my head down for another night of sleep,
There is still no girl to share the night with.

God willing, I will not die alone.
God willing, my lonely nights are almost over.
But for now, I am alone.
