I wrote this with the thought of being old alone many old people just stare at the wall all day seeing nobody for days, at least for those who can use a computor we need never really be alone and out of touch but there are still many who can not use a computor who have lost touch with family have no friends and suffer dementia because they are losing touch due to lonliness. They ask little and can give a lot of pleasure when you listen to there stories of old. Give them a chance they gave you there best years they just ask a little of your time. You will be old one day.
Being 0ld and Alone.
My biggest fear is being alone having lost a family
and my home
the fear that no one will call and i am left to die alone
0ld and frail,
I stare through the window and wonder where
do the people go
what did they do right and i did wrong that they have some one
left to share with
why are they loved and not i?
another day gone and its time for bed i stare at the wall and wish
i was dead
the lonliness and emptyness is terminal, tomorrow will bring more
the fridge its bare i have to go out i have nothing to eat, my feet are soo
painful it is hard to walk but i must eat or get weak
I wipe the tears from my eyes put on my coat and shuffle outside, the air
is clean and fresh, some one smilles and says, “hello” with a smile, i arrive
home happy feeling like some one does really care.
