Mr. Jones by Judi Van Gorder
The office door stood ajar,
invitation for our cheerful morning star.
He liked to talk. Everyday
he stopped to chat before going on his way.
I suppose he was lonely,
at 92, wife gone, kids grown, absentee.
Welshman, from across the sea,
he tried to teach me Welsh, often sang to me.
Its been a while since he last
stopped by. I miss his smile and song, his life passed.
