The Lonely Old man Sits by the Window

entry picture

the lonely man at the window

the old man sits by the window

she left him here yesterday

said she would be back soon

he went to bed but could not sleep

has she stayed away on purpose?

next morning he arises again

to sit and wait even if it takes an eternity

he said he would wait

and that he did until his dying day

this morning at daybreak

This poem intrigues me as it generates a sadness all of its own. Somehow I think many readers will relate to this. It is quite beautiful.
Thank you
