Will You Understand?

By Michael Arvanitis

I don’t like this. I am Lonely
And I don’t know what else to do.
Being isolated and by myself
Brings back memories of my last months with You.

A hand-drawn heart signifying hope

Such a dark time in my life
The darkest I have known.
I don’t like being in this empty house
That used to be my home.

I feel like I’m at the end of my rope.
Can someone lend me a hand?
I don’t know how much longer I can hold on.
If I let go, will you understand?

I’ve come too far to feel this way.
There’s still more work to do.
I’ve survived One thing much worse than this
And I know You all have too.

So I’ll suck it up and continue
To do the best I can do,
To be grateful for all that I do have
Which includes each and every one of You.
