...By myself

I live alone in my small house

All lonely my myself

***

And when I make a lovely meal

I eat it by myself

***

And if I find a funny cause

I laugh all to myself

***

And if by chance I feel some pain

I feel it by myself

***

Even now that I write this poem

I’m writing by myself

***

And if it’s good I cannot tell

Because I’m by myself

***

And if I find it hard to sleep

I stay keen by myself

***

And as a boy without brethren

I played, but with myself

***

And when I feel the urge to speak

I talk all to myself

***

E’en when I keel to pray to God

I pray all by myself

***

I talk a walk out o’ my house

And I see for myself

***

That I alone must face the world

And face it by myself

***

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
