My Friends!All my friends stopped by today!
Well, almost all, that is to say.
I tossed and turned and woke to see
My good friend Cheer across from me.
We sat and talked, but then she walked,
Though I called her name dejectedly.
The hours crept by as I peered at my phone.
And that is when Loneliness found me alone.
He pined and he moaned and I wished him away.
