Best Poem of Tom Allport

An Old Person

An Old Person left alone
No means of support in an empty rented home
The future not thought of
The past ever near
Thoughts no longer needed
Memories of yesteryear
An Old Person dressed in rags
Never enough money and none saved away
Friends and neighbours seem so far away
People who mean well just don't stay
An Old Person
At life's end
No longer the strength or willingness
To make things mend
No sense of hope
With no belief
A time of thought
And not much sleep
An Old Person left alone
