Is It Such a Sin?


from PicturesChildren.com

Why do only the winged-ones hear my plea?

Why do only my canine friends see?

Not that I mind conversing with flowers,

it whiles away most dreary hours.

*

But how I long for a woman’s touch.

Is that really asking for too much?

Or just to hug a long-lost friend,

one that I’ve missed for years on end.

*

No children’s laughter to make me smile,

to come and sit with granddad for awhile.

Festive days get lonely without kin.

Is wishing for company such a sin?
