Two Strangers in a Poem

She walked home slowly past the shops

Displaying shiny, sparkly things

Inside she saw a couple laugh

And flirt as they tried on some rings

They looked so happy, so she thought

Two strangers in a passing frame

She wondered what their lives were like

Or if they felt her pain

It looked so warm inside that shop

As white flakes landed on her face

Some children ran past throwing snow

Her mind was in that place

And lying in her bed that night

She thought about the pair

She wondered if they had kids too

For Christmas day to share

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m so pleased you liked it but sorry if it made you teary.

      What is the weather doing over in Ireland? Any snow? I have good memories of visiting many years ago. We went to Dublin, Galway, Doolin, the ring of Kerry and down to Cork. Magical.

      I hope your week is going well so far. Much love

      1. It’s been OK up til this week – we had blue skies, sun, nice and frosty. But from yesterday it’s starting to go darkish at midday and the sun has died… No snow yet, but we might get some in January – Dublin actually looks lovely with snow. I love the Ring of Kerry I had a great time down there
