my doll

MY DOLL - A POEM 


 
Waiting behind the closed doors
My dearest smiles at me
My tired soul lights up again
I hold my doll with glee


‘Dolls’ for kids’, teases this world
My Doll cries or laughs with me
With it, can I ever get old


Mind filled with guilt as
I keep My Doll homebound
My Doll never complains or cribs
For me, my Doll is always around


Friends or kin come and go
Down in the dumps, I find solace
in my Doll, makes me forget my woes
