THE THREAT OF LONELINES

When she said “I’m lonely
but I’m used to it — it’s OK”
I wondered  if I could ever
feel that way.

So many folks I know
anticipate the threat of loneliness
and I am one of those.

We wonder how we’ll deal
when death descends
and steals the one we care about
above all others.

Our imaginations fail
and perhaps that’s just as well.
