I watch, seeing you sitting there
looking so saddened and somber.
Unkept beard, thinning grey hair
couldn’t appear any more calmer.
Couldn’t help myself but to think
“what’s wrong in that head?”
Thinking, “could I buy you a drink?”
“Quite possibly a loaf of bread?”
Children walk on the other side
as they cautiously, yet hastily skip by.
While managing your dignity and pride
you don’t waste life wondering why.
Though, I now wish that my realization
of inaccuracy had come much sooner…
because after all this time,
I’ve come to find…
..you were just waiting for an Uber.
