Window Shopping

Moving through the market place
     with not a penny left to spend,
Thinking of the letters wrote
     she was never going to send.
Wond'ring if the rain will stop,
     if the dancing man will appear,
Up and down each aisle I roam
     wond'ring if she has e'er been here.

So many faces pass by
     with a rush of the shuffling feet,
Yet not a word is spoken
     for fear that two might have to meet.
Some come to spend a penny,
     some to make a dollar to two,
While some just come to get lost
     and hide themselves from other's view.

Looking into reflections
     that are moving from wall to wall,
I'm searching for the pictures
     which I cannot clearly recall.
I'm asked if they can help me
     as their politeness takes a bow,
I thank them for assistance
     but I'm just window shopping now.
