Patti Morelli

Author        Poet

In my solitude I am

Alone with only myself

Isolated from all that I have known

I reminisce within my mind

Remembering who I was

Memories of a life once lived

Yearning for that friendly smile

Listening for that familiar voice

Longing for that person's touch

In my solitude I search the meaning

of the tears through these years

In my solitude I will find myself

and live a life without a care
