But why?

I looked at the moon
And she said,
‘I am lonely.’
I looked at the sea
And she said,
‘I am lonely.’
I looked at the mountain
And he said,
‘I am lonely.’
I looked at the sky
And he said,
‘I am lonely.’
The traveler is lonely,
The woman by the lake is lonely,
The man in the yacht is lonely,
The poet is lonely.
But why is everybody lonely?
