I remember

Specifically the song by Simon and Garfunkel, "Mrs. Robinson". There music was probably the only music I was able to relate to back then.
They talked of loneliness so many times, in so many tunes.
I am reminded how fortunate I am with my very close friends and then I met them,
the lonely people. The ones who are scared and lonely and actually say hi back when you greet them.
Some how I am reminded of another poet and the Hollow men, which I saw read by a wonderful thespian in High school.
I have seen some one as I walk near our street, who invited me for a beer as I walked past. We talked a bit and I knew he was lonely. There are so many lonely people in this world!
How fortunate am I!
