Cry From an Empty Bench

2013-03-30 12.53.59

For years you sat making my seat warm

Watching passersby stare

Thru winter and spring you posed on my deck

Carrying a load you could scarcely bear

But now, oh woman you are no more

A constant companion in the rain

For far too long you have disappeared

Leaving my hardened soul in pain

Strong and determined you were too

Never backing down from a threat

Yet your soul longed and your heart ached

For a resolution to your misguided bet

Today the sun bares down on my seat

Taking up the space your rear end hugged

Soon another will come to take your place

Oh dear! It will feel like I’m being mugged
