I wasn't alone,

The time of year,

For laughter and cheer,

Your emotions unknown.

x

You go across the street,

Put on your fake smile,

Stay a little while,

And leave very discrete.

x

They greet you with 'Happy New Year!'

You return the phrase,

Smile and grin, don't let them see your plays,

Slip out with the old year.

x

I wasn't alone,

For this new year,

And yet it seems clear,

I was so alone.


I went over to my neighbor's for New Years and felt very alone. No one my age was there and I was babied as always.

Happy New Years.
