DARK SIDE OF LONELINESS:

I wrote this to my three children
some years ago.....it still
carries the same sentiments:
DARK SIDE OF LONELINESS:
I hope you never experience
The deep emotions I feel.
I know what you really think of me,
Yet I love you still.

I live on the "Dark Side Of Loneliness",
Perhaps I've forgotten how to smile.
It would be wonderful to feel really wanted,
If only for a while.

These past nineteen years how hard I've tried to cope.
Many mistakes have come my way.
Moving from Spain was one,
Returning back to the UK.

I don't want to "Cling" to you three.
Lord knows you have problems of your own.
But it would be nice some day,
For you to surprise me on the phone.

The Dark Side of Loneliness
Is not a state I'd reccomend.
I appreciate it's up to me to find the light,
But comforting to know on you I can depend.

To depend on your support.
Not all of you do.
As a mother's love is unconditional
Can the same be said about you.

Should you ever encounter the dark side of loneliness,
Which I hope you never do.
There is one person you can contact,
Me ! I'll help see you through.
