HOPE

An old man

All alone

Confined in the old age home

No one to comfort

Or to hold hand

Remembering golden days

When life was a party,

With children and relatives

Now all busy in their life

*

An old man

All alone

Forlorn

Depression setting in

Trying to count his blessings

With a little hope in his heart

Christmas around the corner

Sweet smell of cake hovering around

Awaiting anxiously

A knock on the door

An old man

All alone

Reader’s Choice Voting will be open from August 29th – September 5th. The entry with the most votes will win the contest.
