Lonely Man on Park Bench

Winter snow falling

cold breezes blowing

blanket off him, as he

tries desperately to sleep.

Such a lonely man is he,

never thinking it would

happen to him, but

could happen to any one of us

at any time.  He once had

a family and many friends, but now

he is too proud to turn to any one for help.

He looks up at the old bridge

up above the raging river, thinking of

taking a walk up there and ending

it all, but hesitates for a moment

and tries to get some sleep,

maybe tomorrow things will be

better, can't be any worse.
