MONDAY POEM: ALL I REALLY NEED:

This poem is from my third book
"Moments of my Life:
I feel particulary lonesome today
being a public holiday:
ALL I REALLY NEED:
My wants are very few my friends.
This lonely existence at my heart do tug.
All I really need
Is just a loveing hug.

To prove that someone cares,
In this world so wide.
Come, give me a hug
As you stand by my side.

I don't ask for wealth.
As I have the beauty around me.
All I really need.
Is someone's arms around me.

Loneliness like laughter is contagious,
This I have you know.
I know which one I prefer.
Come, let you feelings show.

So that I can laugh again.
If only at myself.
All I need is some TLC.
Not monetary wealth.

(I wrote this with my family in mind.)
