Pictures from the mind (11)

The watch in his waistcoat pocket

Kept time as he stepped his way home

His wife of some 50 years fingered her rosary

Praying a safe return.

The poet in us imagines voices

That once were real

Writes words for those who no longer speak.

Words, should no longer be strangers.

A comfort to those who mourn passing.

Hollow only was the chair in which you sat.
