Children caught up in personal affairs
no time for one who sits alone in chairs,
no time to give them, and no time to think
of someone who waits and stands at the sink.
Busy with family everyday
not recognizing how time slips away.
Someday you will be waiting for a call,
wanting affection, no matter how small.
Quickly the children grow and leave the nest,
lifetime spouses die and are laid to rest.
Embers of hope weaken and barely glows
when no one calls and no one shows.
Traveling salesmen are greeted with glee.
The “Witnesses” invited in for tea.
It will happen much sooner than you think,
and be you in the chair or at the sink.
