How Lonely Can You Be?

it has been cold and lonely,
how lonely can it be?
how lonely can you be?
that I wouldn’t know for sure
but your eyes,
your eyes
your eyes my dear
never will it lie
I see your pain
and I feel your agony
cheer up my dearest
let me take you to a place
a place where your eyes
will speak of a thousand joyful moments
your heart will cry out for a thousand and more wonderful memories, and your mind
your mind, will finally find its happy thoughts, its restful respite
and its quiet refuge
my dearest friend take my hand
and together,
“let’s fly to the moon
let’s play among the stars
let’s see what spring is like
on Jupiter and Mars”

“In other words, hold my hand”
you’ll be fine, with me,
