A Home

Elizabeth Kamosa-

There is a little house

that sits beside the sea.

The sun rises golden each morning

like the color of a key.

And inside this house

lives an old man.

He reminisces over times

when his kids would trek in sand

But now they’ve all grown

and gone their separate ways.

The simple children routines

are just a memories daze.

He would call upon his wife

but she is gone too.

She stayed strong for many years

but death always comes too soon.

He wakes up before the dawn

again realizing he’s alone.

So he walks onto the beach

and takes a good look at his home.
