lots of people live alone, because of being widowed, divorced, like myself and their families dont see them often and they live in their little boxes with not much company… in days gone by generations of families would live together but now we isolate ourselves in these little boxes, do you think this is the right way to live? or do you think  it would be better for you and healthier to live together? I hate living on my own, even though I have Katy cat and Polly Guide Doggie and spend most of my time alone and it is sooo quiet here as where I lived before it was busy and urban but at least you saw a bit of life around you even if you were on your own in your little box!
I sit alone in this little house
everything is as quiet as a tiny mouse
the roads are empty
the streets are bare
there are no people
to smile or say “hi there”
the trees are tall
and the wind is blowing now
I really wonder how
I can sit here in this noiseless place
without a sound 
just say my grace
perhaps a person will walk by
I really really must try
to appreciate the wealth of the countryside
but a town would be busier place to abide
if alone I have to sit
I really want to see my face lit
with sunshine happiness and some company too
is all I ask of little old you
so as I sit in this box
with snug feet in my cosy sox
I think of times when I had cheer
with family around me so dear
but time ticks on in this lonely home
I hope that someone soon will phone
and have a litte chat
and that would be that
a voice to hear
a joke
some laughter
perhaps even 
in my dreams
happy every after!

Author: Rosy

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
