The Old Crying Lady - Poem by Robbie Squires

See the clueless ones
Just drive on by
They don’t know what happened
At the house inside
The heaviest snow had fallen
Men paved their roads
The ambulance came
And took him away
I saw him last that day

A solemn event took place
It was peaceful though
As they trudged through the snow
Braced against the cold wind blow
I stood silent at my bedroom window
Watching the man inside the bag
Get pushed into the back
And the van left tire tracks

The old smoking lady cried herself away
He was silent once again
Hes in the palace where he was born
Someday they will be together again

Remember old crying lady
Everything will be alright
The men will tear
And the women will cry
But everything will be alright

Mother Nature has her ways
She took him away
Today
But it was time
Life was hard
Just a last goodbye
Would’ve been nice

Remember old crying lady
Everything will be alright
The men will tear
And the women will cry
But everything will be alright
