Obs

family came to see him,
the old man was happy..
for just five minutes..
She brought cakes for
the staff, forty of..
She stood by the window
trying not to cry..
Putting on a brave face,
But we could see..
more into it..
grand daughter was
visibly distressed..
not knowing what reaction
would be best, such a pretty
face, innocence and old age..
it's a touching meeting
under distress, and I don't know why,
Granddad gently closed the window
and said it's too painful outside.
