When You Least Expect It, a Neighbor Comes to My Rescue
It was nighttime and the darkness was engulfing my inner sole
I listened carefully as the twigs in my front yard break alerting a possible foe
I waited quietly, unable to move from my easy chair
Hot perspiration erupting on my forehead, room ejecting hot air
Then from out of nowhere she calls my name, " neighbor are you here? "
My answer was nothing more than a whisper, " Yes I'm here, who goes there? "
" Why it's your neighbor Rosie, I came to see if you need anything
I thought I'd come in person instead of a phone ring
Times are scary with this C virus on the rise
Neighbors love each other and love to bring hope, plus we love to vocalize
And how about this homemade hot apple pie?
Don't worry, I'm wearing a mask and gloves, we'll stay at least six feet away from each other
We're both lonely for family whose far away. I miss my mother, sister and brother "
I found my voice and told her, " Please come on in
I miss my family too and in dire need of a good neighbor friend. "
