Feeling no love at all
Lost in a relationship that is mean
See them every day
But feel like I've never been seen

Reaching out for others
Looking to connect, some sign
On any level at all
At work, school or online

Finally locating some love
Friends who like me as me
But they're online friends
Can it truly be?

One friendship grows
As I watch my painful love die
Giving me hope for a future
As I wave my past goodbye

Baggage remains as I cling
Holding too tight to my new love
Unable to trust or grow
Although I reach for more she give a gentle shove

Losing this person hurts inside
A hundred times more than any before
But knowing I should be loved
Allows me to search for more

From time to time
Loneliness and despair come to call
But through the strength and kindness shown
I find a way to forestall it all

Remembering I am good
Truthful, loving and filled with growing pride
For I have friends to rely on
And God is by my side

As I venture through new relationships
I learn more of who I am to be
Looking for someone who loves me
As much as I love being me
