Good Company

Now that I am on my own

And live alone

It comes home very clear

I need to be someone it’s good to know

I’m in need of pleasant company

A gentle happy soul

If I’m not that

There really is no show


I love these quiet days you know

They always suited me

I like the quiet life

Don’t like a crowd

A life of study and giving talks

And gently listening to others’ walks

Has been my life

And yes I can be proud


But at the heart of what we do

The essence is the same

I need to be my own best friend

That’s how to play the game

The cares of life its troubles

Are with us for a while

But the person that I am inside

He’s with me every mile
