Are you feeling lonely? If so, you’re not alone
Loneliness can hit us
Sometimes when we’re at home
Sometimes when we’re in company
Or even walking down the road
It tends to make us feel
As if we’re carrying a heavy load.
If we could just be brave enough
To speak of how we feel
To convey to someone else
These feelings which are so real
We’d feel a little better
Knowing someone cared
And the heaviness would be lifted
As the load had now been shared.
