Poem: Though No One Loves Me Yet

In my loneliness, I will love

Though no one loves me yet

So I have no need for tears

No cause for me to fret

If I have no lover’s hand to hold

I’ll hold a wrinkled shaking one

And hear them tell their stories of

Their own life, nearly done.

If I have no lips to kiss

I’ll kiss a crying child’s knee

And soothe her hurt a little bit

As someone else once did for me

If I have no one to share

With thoughts and hopes and dreams

I’ll keep on wishing, keep on thinking

And hope someone dreams of me
