OLD MAN RELEASED

OLD MAN RELEASED

An old man holding onto friendship
With a joyful, pretty young thing…
Long distance relations,
Seldom happiness bring.

Foolish was he for asking
For a picture of her face…
Her polite silence
Suggests she wants her space.

No more use in trying
With a cold shoulder from afar…
He might as well just accept
Things the way they are!
