A Man Stood Part I

A Man Stood Part I Story/poem A man stood by his window, looking out into the world. Already in his twilight years, his gaze was kind of lost - as he wondered - where has my youth gone? A man stood by his window, thinking about his past life. once he had a family. It didn't last too long. Out of three children, he lost two. One died at birth, the other died in a fire with his wife. He got to save his older daughter, by jumping out of a second story window. He too got burned some and they both spend a long time in the hospital. His daughter was ten years old. he never got married again. A man stood by his window, thinking about an old love. He never knew what happened to her all he knew was that he had another daughter by her. In his mind, he knew that he had loved her, but she left when he didn't marry her. He knew now that he had made a mistake, but it was too late. A man stood by his window, looking out into the world. He's thinking, about his daughter - grown up and married, living a happy life. That is the daughter he saved. He looks in the mirror and knows, that he has gotten old. He has a lot of money and lives in a big house. Only a cat keeps him company. He don't have many friends. A man stands by his window, thinking about his past love and the daughter he has. he wonders if he will ever see them, or if they will just stay in the past...

    Hello Lucilla, the story poem hold many sad thoughts. for starters the image of the lonely man and his cat are left with deep empty recognition. Know you left me wondering if my dad can touch bases with this poem. In the past I ask my dad what his thoughts were. He said. "Daughter can't an old man reminisce in peace." sigh' I'm gonna follow the other poems and read to the third part. *LUV~SID

    Dear Luci, this is so sad, lonely man with his cat, your words play my imagination by an old man standing near his window, really a touched story, still another part I eagerly want to read :)

    Oh, what a story. And so sad. I love it, Lucilla. That's what happen when we sit there and reminisce. We will remember things like that. That is just too sad though. What memories!
