Lonley Hearts

Painted by me: A.Mosope

Theme: "lonely heart"

THE human heart has hidden treasures, 

In secret kept, in silence sealed;­ The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures, 

Whose charms were broken if revealed. 

And days may pass in gay confusion, 

And nights in rosy riot fly, 

While, lost in Fame's or Wealth's illusion, 

The memory of the Past may die. 

But, there are hours of lonely musing, 

Such as in evening silence come, 

When, soft as birds their pinions closing, 

The heart's best feelings gather home. 

Then in our souls there seems to languish 

A tender grief that is not woe; 

And thoughts that once wrung groans of anguish, 

Now cause but some mild tears to flow. 

And feelings, once as strong as passions, 

Float softly back­a faded dream; 

Our own sharp griefs and wild sensations, 

The tale of others' sufferings seem. 

Oh ! when the heart is freshly bleeding, 

How longs it for that time to be, 

When, through the mist of years receding, 

Its woes but live in reverie ! 

And it can dwell on moonlight glimmer, 

On evening shade and loneliness; 

And, while the sky grows dim and dimmer, 

Feel no untold and strange distress­ 

Only a deeper impulse given 

By lonely hour and darkened room, 

To solemn thoughts that soar to heaven, 

Seeking a life and world to come.

  • During the night, under the moon light, an owl sits on a branch of the tree, alone, feeling the breeze of the night and enjoying the lovely view of nature, but it wished there was someone by its side.
