People Watching - Poem by Marilyn Lott

One of my favorite past times
Is to sit along the street
At an outside café perhaps
With a meal or little treat

And just enjoy people watching
Seeing young couples and old
Holding hands and talking and such
Little stories you can see unfold

It doesn’t matter where folks live either
Whatever is best for you
Because folks go about their lives
Doing the things they have to do

Habits and personalities are different
Yes, we know that’s so true
What is right for me
Isn’t necessarily right for you

But still we’re all linked together
In so many interesting ways
You see it when you observe
Just try it one of these days

For people watching is fun
And it’s amazing what you’ll find
Everyone is so different
You’ll not see two of a kind!
