Lonely at Christmas
by Sandra Martyres
Bookmark and Share
 

He woke up early
As he did every day
Put on his boots
And walked to the park
Finding an empty bench
He sat down pensively

A strong wind sent
His cap into the sky
He watched it rising up
With a very resigned sigh
But luck was on his side
It dropped right beside him

He must have dozed off
As he did not realise
That a partner had joined
Him on the bench lying
As close to him as possible
It was a fluffy white pup

Spontaneously he patted it
The little dog responded by
Lovingly licking his hand
The old man muttered
A prayer thanking God
For sending him a friend

Christmas would now be
Less lonely for him
With a dog to share
His piece of turkey
A small treat from his son
Who could not visit him.
