    Maybe I should just stay by my side for awhile.
    Try me on for size
    See how I like me.
    Maybe I can learn how to be
    my own best friend.


    I am so rich in friendships and love
    loneliness should not visit me often.


    Not as frequently as it did when I was young.
    Even after a long day of play
    I would be very lonely.
    Home alone at night for a child
    was not comforting.

    Now all grown up
    and again alone
    can I comfort me?

    Smiling sadly

    All these others can say it so much better than I, but I will agree, you need to love you first and foremost. From all I can see, you should have no trouble loving you, you sound very special.

    If there was ever a time to find peace within yourself, it's now.

    Lovely flow Missy Gaylee :wink:

    A sentiment worthy of sharing.
    A feeling needing expressing.
    A joyful relearning.
    Sigh

    Thank you all for your reads, and encouraging words. This will be a journey, I can see I will not take alone, after all.

    I am reading you. And I am seeing some of me in your verses. And I am thinking there is hope for my own soul's liberation. I await the day.

    Thank you
