Don’t get me wrong

I’d love to spend time with you

Walk along and stroll the park

Or maybe roam around the mall

Sit down and talk

In our local coffee shop

But today my friend

I’d like to be alone

Doesn’t mean I don’t like you anymore

I just want to enjoy me

Even if it means talking to myself

I’d sing my favorite lullaby

I’d dance to the rhythm of my existence

I’d walk alone, have fun in the sun

And when I get tired of roaming alone

I’d sit and sip a nice cup of tea

Enjoy a slice of cake by myself

Stop for a while and think back

How swiftly time had gone by

The memories of the past

That binds me still

The times of my life

Where did it go?

Today I’d like my time alone

Contemplate and meditate

With fervent prayers of hope

For this tired soul to find its way home.

Sometimes you need to be alone, not to be lonely but to enjoy your free time being yourself. ~

      Oscarlites: Thank you for sharing your experience and good thoughts. Throughout the course of my life, I've learned to appreciate and value my time-alone. It is, as you said to reset and refresh our whole being. Life could be very stressful and so, some time alone is precious. Thanks again for gracing my page.

      I think everyone has their own "Alone" island or plan or regimen. From when I was a child, my mother sang an old hymn, "I just steal away somewhere, (and pray)". but the message that it taught me was sometimes no one on (earth at least) can help our dilemma or moments of disillusionment with others, with programs, with relationships, and other things I can't think of! good thoughts!!!!. make some alone time and simply reset: thanks!

      I agree with your message in this poem. Sometimes one need to be alone, we need to have some time with ourselves. Every once in a while, this is necessary!

      Alone time is something that I look forward to. I love my big family, but time alone is precious. After too much time alone, I often feel something missing in my life--family! That's when I fill up a bag of healthful treats and happy gifts and dash off to see the grandchildren. After a few hours of wonderment and exhaustion, I feel thankful that I can visit and leave when I get ready. Life is lovely and so is this nice poem! Thanks for sharing.

      I like to spend time alone, especially at the beach by water's edge. And I like driving in my car alone, not having to pay attention to anyone else, going where I want to go, when I want to, with the radio loud....

This is a brilliant write..It's better to be alone and keep your dignity than to be in a relationship where you always sacrifice your self respect..One ,after all,should enjoy every passing moments with himself and live for what he thinks is right.Voted up
