The joy of being alone

The joy of being alone
by Joel Howard
A warm welcome to solitude 

I like you, dear solitude 
To not see nor move
I welcome you, close friend and kin
I give you space to enter in

Check me out! Make your move!
O dearest friend, O solitude
If I in some way can help you
Let me know, O solitude 

Not much has changed 
In recent moons
Still selfish me
And gracious you
But your delight has set me free
So come and do what you will do

And teach our world 
Yes teach us anew
To let you in, dear solitude 
For as we wait and nothing do
You get your way, dearest solitude!
