ALONE

By Al Garcia

How many times have we met or said hello?  How many places have I been where everyone smiled at me and talked to me?  How many hugs and kisses have I received from family and from friends?  And how many people who thought they knew me, knew I was alone?

You always saw my smile.  You always heard my gracious words.  You saw my face and just assumed that I was just like all the rest.  You didn’t know I was alone.

You thought me happy.  You thought me bright.  You thought I had it all.  But you didn’t know I was alone.

No one knows what it’s like to feel alone in the middle of a crowd.  I do.  No one knows what it’s like to feel dejected and rejected, every day, everywhere.  I do.  No knows the pain of an empty heart.  I do.  And you never knew that I felt alone.

I have memories of growing up and feeling I was loved.  I have memories of times long gone when my heart beat just like all the rest.  But those are only memories, and no longer a part of me.  I am alone, and no one seems to know, but me.

How many others feel alone like me and do not know that I exist and that they are not the only ones who feel like this?  And they will never know, because they feel they are alone like me.

Alone is such a lonely way to live.
