Cafe Solo

Cafe solo

Says it all

Life is so so 

On the edge.

But,

Alone I find

I see the blind

I understand the world

A little better.

And I know

Myself

And who I was

Before I met her

Before I met

My own storm shelter.

Only when you are 

Alone

Is when you find

Your real way home.

To where your pulse 

Beats. . . . . . 

To where your heart

Heats.

And you know you are

Alive.

        When we lose a loved one it takes a while to find ourselves again but it will happen and life will be good once more.
