I Stand Alone by Simon Jay

I wrote this during a seminar. It’s about the physical pain chronic pain sufferers have to go through daily, and what the future may hold.

I stand alone in the dark
Waiting for the day to come
Sweet is the sound of the lark
The light it would be welcome

The black is enveloping
I stand alone in the dark
People ask how I’m coping?
I seek the sound of the lark

Has my life yet made it’s mark?
It’s creeping nearer now
I stand alone in the dark
I want to be seen but how

Time marches on and on
Through the silence comes the lark
I can see, here comes the dawn. (yet)
I stand alone in the dark.
