She Sits by the Window – Poem by Walt Page

Poetry by Walt Page: The Tennessee Poet

She sits by the window
Hour after hour
Waiting and watching
Her loneliness chills her
And she shivers
But she still sits
Hoping and praying
It’s 1965
He was drafted
Sent to a far off jungle
To fight for the red, white and blue
Two sad-faced soldiers
Had come yesterday
But she knows
They must have been wrong
So she sits by the window
Waiting and watching
Hoping and praying
