A Walk in the Park

This walk in the park
is a life to celebrate:
a bag of bread
from the ‘day old’ store,
carefully broken into pieces
except for the crusty end slices
that he saves for himself.

Those he toasts and savors
with tea, remembering
the breakfasts she used to make:
bacon and eggs, potatoes
seasoned just right.  The best
was her song, the way it burst
from her lips; he misses it most.

This walk in the park, surrounded
by his retinue of devoted fans —
boisterous, they flock around him,
the spark that keeps him going
until that dreamed of day
when he takes her by the hand
again.
