Loneliness is my friend-
Within my little home
Dear and faithful- it never leaves-
And still I am alone

I don't mind such a friend-
As friends must always be
To who it is- pay little mind-
One companion for me

Hope not for a better-
One you will never find
Perhaps it is for the best- as-
Loneliness is kind

Better friend than the cross-
Asks not for truth- nor love
Just for me- and me alone
Need not the land above
