My Heart Belongs With the Lonely

My heart belongs with the lonely,
It’s where I’m meant to be –
Not in the thoughtless crowd, or off
Among complacency

My heart belongs with the lonely,
And will to them be borne –
For while I still have eyes to see,
I’ll comfort those
Who mourn

Yet there was one special person, the poet, who admired her. I thought this had a great lesson in it: that of how there is always someone who thinks of you as special, even if you don’t see yourself the same way.

    If that sounds interesting to you, I wrote an article describing the key values of the poem here:
