Do not feel lonely, God is there by your side!
Those were the days long past ,yet near,
When you stood upright ,had no fear.
Moved ahead with a mind full of zeal,
Struggled hard to reach top of the hill.
If you had failed may be you tried again,
Your efforts brought luck or went in vain.
If it was a failure you could still then bear,
With hopes for success to make you cheer.
You had less worries than you have now,
Looking back you wonder time passed how !
As days pass by and you grow older,
A lot of responsibilities for you to shoulder,
You handle your jobs the best you can do,
May be at times people criticise you.
You start to wonder what wrong you have done,
You feel down, hurt and lose all fun,
Quite often you wish you were not old,
stayed young all through, strong and bold.
You shed tears , your hearts now cry,
You can’t hide sadness though you try.
My friend, if you are one of those lucky few,
You will have all your dear ones with you,
To comfort you and to console you,
Cheer you up and make you feel new.
But if you have none and you feel lonely,
And you have yourself to speak to only,
Whatever be that may , Oh my dear,
Pull yourself up and have no fear,
You have your God who you can trust,
Speak to him, He will help you must.
