Camera Catch 4

Site has changed since I last put some pics on. Why does it always do that when I don’t visit for awhile? Then I lose track of what to do!
Here I can’t make my pics the size I want them to be, whereas I could easily change their size in the “old” set up! That’s the word “old”, must mean I’m too much of that to catch on when these changes come round. Ah well, nothing I can do about that!

He looked at me
With age-rhuemed eyes,
But yet a smile upon his face.

“How are you today?” I asked,
thinking he looked so frail,
yet still he smiled cheerfully.

“Ah, not so good,” and he sighed.
“Just waiting to die,”
he said hopefully,

I passed the food I’d brought him,
And wondered why
he kept that smile upon his face.

“She’d get mad at me,” he said,
“if I didn’t take good care,
and keep a smile upon my face.”

“But I’ve been here too long without her,
and every day it’s harder
for me to keep smiling, like this”.

“Tell me before you go,” he asked,
“what day is it today?’
“It’s Tuesday today,” I told him.

And as I walked away to leave him
I felt the warmth upon my face
As tears slid down.

Beach Days

I went to visit at the beach,
Sand and sea within my reach.
Two good friends to meet my needs,
With cheery words and kindly deeds.
The game called “Sorry” that we played,
Left us smiling, and not dismayed.
The food and walks were all top class,
But days have a habit to quickly pass.
And so we parted with a hug and kiss,
But if you read this, know I’ll miss.
Your company and all our talk,
So that when I take my solo walk,
I’ll think of you and have to smile.
So thanks, and see you in a while!
