Michael Edwards




Left all alone,

with no one to care for.

Both sought a new direction

that led them down converging paths

and took them there

to Kirby Grange


Still alone

but gently settling,

slowly, surely, friendship formed.

With empathy and understanding,

both grew close

at Kirby Grange


Directions found,

their paths converged,

their hopes and dreams

now realised,

together both

at Kirby Grange.

    Leaving alone is so sad. But new direction is sought here. Relationship is now gently settling. Friendship is now formed with empathy and understanding. This is very beautiful poem.
