WELCOME TO THE 16TH LETTER
OF THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2015:
AGAIN I WILL CHOOSE A SONG TITLE
AND ATTEMPT TO WRITE MY OWN POEM:
BILLY ECKSTINE AND
Have you ever been out walking
Seeing a stranger approaching you?
Do you wonder what is going on in his/her life,
As that person comes into view.
Is that person married?
Perhaps a mum or dad.
Are they wishing for the moon,
For things they never had?
Or equally they could be single,
Out in the world all alone.
Staying at home night after night,
Waiting for the ring of the phone.
The call that never comes,
As that person retires to bed.
Thinking of days gone by
And all the things that have been said.
One never realises who we pass
As we're out day after day.
Passing strangers I call them
As they go along their way.
I suppose we;re all too busy
In our own world we seem to stay.
Take a good look at the next passing stranger,
As he/she comes your way.
