I am old and lonely,
Remembering my youth which was lovely.
In my room, I live alone,
Waiting for love and care, which is not shown?
Often I want to be a part of their discussion,
But I am deserted in my past obsession?
Why can’t I go out with my family?
They called me old and I am lonely.
Tears rolled down as I reflected my past,
How I worked tirelessly for my children fast.
Baking and cooking all good dishes,
Fulfilling all their wishes.
Now as I aged,
In my room, I was caged.
The mirror said you are wrinkled,
As I smiled seeing my faded dimple.
Somehow, my prayers were answered,
My grandson invited me for dinner I felt pampered.
Excited I opened my cupboard,
Choosing my best outfit, which was bordered?
I wore a necklace and a broach,
Also, a golden frame specs with a positive approach.
My heart was beating with this date,
I got ready, never wanting is be late.
My grandchildren had pooled the money,
To take me out with their pocket Penney.
As we set on the dinner table,
I took the menu, ordered an expensive food label.
I could see uneasiness when the waiter came with a bill,
I took it smartly showing my patience skill.
Children, I only want your company and care,
You will get all my money, all my share.
Children hugged me as the tears rolled,
It was a memorable day, God I thank you with my hands fold…
