When her friend told her of her loneliness she answered, “Sometimes I am lonely too.

But when I’m feeling lonely this is what I do.”


“When I’m overcome with loneliness…when I feel marooned

when I’m feeling my darkest…I smile at the moon.”


“And I think of all the people…all the other people who…

are also looking up…and smiling at her too.”


“And I see upon her surface…all the people I have known…

and I think of all the people who love me 


and I know I’m not alone.”
