He passed by Joanne today,

Said HI, in the usual way…

She said whistfully

She missed him to see,

It made it a less pleasant day!

He’d normally come down to write,

But he had some sickness to fight…

A quick HI!–BYE!

Then he had to fly,

With traffic his schedule was tight.

It pleased him to think he was missed,

Though he still voiced denial of this…

Since long ago

He’s struggled to know

He has value–as others witness!

But he likes it when she is there,

Her pleasant nature–what she wears…

Sometimes there’s no way

He can come down to “play”,

In that case it’s a life that he bears.

–Jonathan Caswell
