Lonely No. 2​

Written on December 1973 

 

Oh, my new friend, 
Try to be kind, 
Try to listen, 
Try to understand.  
And rub off my tears with
your holy hand. 

 

Please do listen 
and do understand 
That loneliness 
Is a state of mind. 

 

I feel lonely like
a lost child in the desert. 
I feel lonely 
And millions are present.  

 

But you can't understand

you can't understand!  

 

I like to slide down  
on a slope of sand, 
and sink into the ocean 
with my soul and mind.
 
And search for new love, 
And search for new land. 
And leave all my miseries 
And loneliness behind.
