|Although we spend our time with others,
each of us finds when we have grown;
while many things can be done together,
our feelings are felt alone.
|Life gives the illusion of unity,
with all the examples we are shown:
we often see one another sharing,
but in truth we are alone.
|One may even choose the night life,
hanging out in the party zone;
but that lifestyle is really hollow,
and come morning you're still alone.
|Nothing the world seems to offer,
nor acquaintances we have known;
can break through the dire solitude,
of our existing all alone.
|Except the case of God's love,
and its relationship we learn to hone;
when He fills that place in our heart,
we find we're no longer alone.
