Old Man Looking Out The Window

His stream of life had been squeezed to a trickle

From a body growing increasingly fickle

Expecting a thrill, today’s news was a chill

The old man looked out the window

But the strain of pain kept him alert

The hospital had become a second home

When he last checked out he felt a bout of sadness

And when nurse Clay came to say goodbye

With tears in his eyes, he looked out the window

A Wren sailed by headed for the bright blue sky

Suddenly frost had arrived, unexpected, uninvited

Like the swelling in his left knee, he could feel the chill

Seeing nothing else to do, he must be through

So he looked out the window
