Are you lonesome when the parades start the season, lights adorn the trees and dwelling places

Are you lonesome when people chatter of parties and family get-togethers,

Are you lonesome when the priest announces the feast and the choir sings in glee

Are you lonesome when shoppers mob the streets to buy gifts and glorify their wares

Are you lonesome when the birds stop tweeting and squirrels are no longer playing

Ants and worms have cocooned themselves into the deeper earth, The racoons have gone into hiding

Are you lonesome? I am not.


The moon and the stars have bade goodbye; the sun is a far cry

The sea is calm and white, the wind sighs and hoots

Leaves, young and old fall and perish

Clouds don’t bother to show up

 All colours gone from the face of the earth

Are you lonesome? I am not.


I laugh when people laugh

I smile before anyone smiles

I love the innocence of kids, and feel their warmth when they hug

I give away what I need the most

I cherish every happy moment, and cleanse every evil thought


As I breathe, I serve- God and mankind

So much to do in so little a time

I have no room for lonesome

And neither should you.

  1. God is always with us. He'll never leave us nor forsake us.

    This is great, just in time for Valentine's Day! It's always good to be reminded, to appreciate the small things in life. The small things adds up, and become big things! :)

  2. Nope... I have my two best friends in the world to keep me company... Jack Daniels and Coke Cola... LOL!!! With those two around I am never alone... Hickup, excuse me... LOL!!!

    1. hmmmmm.....those can be dangerous companions..lol, lol

  3. NOPE!!! I have Jesus rolling with me, all day, everyday!! But on a serious note, I enjoyed reading this!

    1. ah what a beautiful response.....
      thank you, Marie-Judy the author extends her thanks as well.

  4. Charming and intensely beautiful poem !

    1. Namaste and many thanks. Marie-Judy will be very pleased to see your feedback on her poem

  5. There's so much to do for me to be lonesome o. Nice

    1. hmmmmmm......I guess though I've learnt that one need not be, lonesome that is.

  6. I love the innocence of kids and feel their warmth when they hug.

    Reminded your good thing I will writing in my book.
    Thank you very much for help!
    Have a nice day!

    1. Yes the innocence of kids is a joy to experience.
      you are welcome.

  7. Great post, thanks for sharing this. Sometimes it gets so chaotic and busy around here, I wish for solitude. The minute the thought crosses my mind I immediately take it back, knowing that I don't ever want to be totally alone... to the point of loneliness. And, I thank God for the 'chaos-makers' in my life.

    I’m just dropping by to see what's new and to say hello and let you know I’m thinking of you.Have a splendid Weekend!

    1. Well there has to be balance and I think that is what we all aspire to have balance, a little family time, husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend time, children time, friend time and ME time.

      hmmmmm....i agree "totally alone" is certainly not my goal.

      good to read from you. A splendid weekend to you too.

    2. I agree with you Rhapsody-balance is key. Total lonesomeness would pose a problem, wouldn't it? So also would total dependence on others for our happiness. Me time is very vital, but so is other-people-time too.

      Loved this poem. Beautiful one.

    3. Great points, thank you for coming and sharing, your portion was worth the wait for you to participate.
