When In Loneliness Think of Me ( poetry of 2010)

When In Loneliness Think of Me

In the loneliness
solitude of time,
just think of me,
a friend of thine

Upon my shoulders,
lay your head and weep,
if you wish to instead
when your tears flow dry,
you will then know
how loneliness too does fly
A smile shall come upon your face
as when a lonesome stranger,
like me the face you try to trace
in the mirrors of time
the shadows of life
whenever you are ever in strife,
think about me and my lonely life.

I rest upon shoulders still alive,
none wants to carry me you bet
there where the end has yet
to me finally lay to rest.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity):

and a good one. Wish I had the talent of a Cole Porter, Gershwin, or Tom Jobim to put these words to music.
How much our poetry changes with time!

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
ee cummings

may explore
if you think
it's worth..
