My whole life, I’ve never been alone

Or completely lonely,

Now I find myself asking,

What if and If only?

Insecure about alone,

And the status it brings,

The wedding bands are here

Now they’re just rings

Can I learn to be alone and not  

Be lonely?

Or do I forever ask,

What if and If only?              



Author's Notes/Comments: 

Learning to be alone for the first time in my life.

Whoa, scary thought! I know you heard of the song sung by Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin, right? "Nobody wants to be lonely"...<---That's the title of the song. It's really scary thinking about loneliness. Nicely written poem.
