Longing For Human Comfort

Longing for human comfort

Life loses all meaning

A yearning so strong

It threatens my very being


One kind word or smile

Is what my heart’s needing

to mend a suffering soul

That’s dying and bleeding


Such profound loneliness

Pains my heart’s beating

Cutting deep into my core

My souls way of seeing
