Things That May Greet You One Day - Poem by RIC BASTASA

a faucet that leaks
a computer that shuts down
a cell phone on low batteries
a flashlight that does not light
a dark bathroom
a malfunctioning vcd
a car that does not start
a study lamp with a broken
switch

some things broken
you wish they were not

but just the same
you go on with what
this broken day has to offer

you relax on sad thoughts
you mend what you can
such are your days
and she never knew
