Hot Chocolate - Poem by Ray Andrews

Sitting in the coffeeshop
Looking for my friend
People lining up
Awaiting warm service on a cold day

Amidst the que a four year old
Busily waiting by mom
Chill air from the door cooling him
And all the others around

I saw him take a look at me
And turned to see my friend
When I looked back toward the boy
He was looking at me again

Probably needing attention
Ignored along the line
A grandfatherly smile and gesture made
I hoped it would make him fine

He looked again and spoke out loud:
HOT CHOCOLATE he said to me
Taken aback and slow to connect
I thought 'Yes, Yes, I see'

Friendly support to give
Thumbs up I sent for free
He looked with great approval
And thumbs up he sent to me

A message accross generations
And various strangers too
Saying the words HOT CHOCOLATE
Will very kindly do
