Again last night you came to me
With tales of the end of your latest romance
Asking how you could possibly bear the pain
With your head on my shoulder
   I dried your tears
While assuring you that tomorrow
Someone new would come along
When you were finally comforted
       You kissed my cheek
And returned to your world

As I looked around my apartment
       Now empty again
I thought of my walks in the park
       Watching the couples
          Of tables for one
        And movies alone
And as I reached for a book of poetry
        I felt the moisture of a tear
       Running down my face

For a while some people have
      A shoulder to cry on
It is the destiny of others
      To cry alone
