I listened to the outdated man’s sighs,
he bowed his head and shut his eyes.
Back in time his recollections went.
His shoulders and his back were being bent.
His experience took on a haunted glimpse,
as he scrolled by his minds scrapbook.
A smile appeared and up he glanced,
remembering some time improved
by images moving into his thoughts,
one thing that he experienced remaining driving
in individuals faint much away used days,
recollected down distant ways.
And then his countenance turned grim,
a stark occasion came back to him,
forgotten for a extended, extended spell,
generating the shining tears to dwell,
in just those observing orbs that shone.
Is a person missing? Someone absent?
I noticed prior to me a male clever,
and viewed him as he tried using to increase.
Stumbling, weary, together the road,
carrying this sort of a significant load
of sorrows, soreness and items now earlier.
On cobblestones his shadow forged.
So gradually he superior in the direction of,
a shelter produced of plywood boards.
And climbing in, was out of perspective,
his title, his age, I never realized.
I turned and walked throughout the sq.,
contemplating that existence was so unfair.
Next day I read that he experienced died,
and that’s when I sat down and cried.
