A Moment of Loneliness

Woke up today
To a feeling of emptiness
Loneliness does that to you

For a brief moment
I felt that I am all alone
Really alone

Then I hear the sound
Of the next room door
Opening and closing

My son just woke up
Leaving his room
Probably to get a drink

For that brief moment
I thought of my life
Of how wonderful it is
Of how I am much loved
Of how grateful I am
Of how I am blessed

That brief feeling
Of emptiness and loneliness

It reminds me that
That I am never alone or lonely
Unless I allow myself to be.
