sad to find no pleasure
from one to smile back –
or a gentle touch –
as fingers swipe across
ones’ face

people - back away
tremble inside – yelling
without telling - please
step aside

lonely for those people
who stare from a window
waiting patiently for a
sign of life

once frolicking inside
ones’ home with friends of
friends and relatives – now

how chasing a butterfly
or watching a grasshopper
made children shudder –
when spiders crawled

life becomes empty
when you are one -

waiting in silence for
one – only one
to return
from dust.
