Alone, he sits in soulful contemplation
Fading health and faded memories
his only true companions
Sun's rays reflect
bars of
confinement
On
the floor,
his tears drop
splashing lost friends onto
his broken shoes that, like
his life, have seen better days

He
stares out
on deserted thoughts
and tries to picture
gatherings of well worn friends
whose cheerful echoes wither from view
He resigns himself to the tortuous
task of surviving another day
He closes his eyes
and begins praying
for the
strength

This is a poem from my 'Uncle Joe' series

though most would choose not to see.
