Beside Me

                       Love Birds ~ Philip Brent Harris


They said, “How far is lonesome?”
That was the question they asked.
And, I realized, I did not know.
My life has been filled with love.
Yet, some people live with people,
Family, friends, others, but alone.

Can you answer this question?
I wonder, as I ponder this and,
I believe, perhaps, I do know.
Not in the world, deep inside,
When I imagine my worst life,
My world, without your love.

Love, that lights my every path.
At times walks behind me, pushes;
Kicks my backside, when needed.
More often, takes me by the hand,
Walks with me, shares all with me,
Unless I worry and grow lonesome.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
