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
