Quote #4

White—robed forms of friends long given, (line 37)

This is the root of the speaker's loneliness. Death has cut him off from the people he loves. His grief has completely taken him over, and made him feel friendless, loveless, and alone. Seeing these ghosts makes him feel better for a second, but in the end, he's alone for good. Pretty grim, we know.
