My Loneliness

Ehsan Sehgal

I knew it would happen
Everyone will leave me
I will remain alone
I knew it, I know it,
It is my fate; it is my prize
To live alone
To smile alone
To cry alone
To dry my tears alone
To talk myself
Or keep silent for the life
In this cruel world
I am now used to bear
All sorrows and pains
I am familiar with that
No one shares anything
Without meanings
I knew it, I know it,
That's why
I have not hopes
I have not dreams
Except only my tears
That refresh me
That give me life
To live and smile
With my broken heart
With my desires and affection
That didn't complete nor
I could say to my beloved
My beloved, who left me alone
Now I am and my loneliness
To waiting for my beloved
Who will not come back
I knew it, I know it.
