There's an old woman
who lives in our town,
She never seems to smile
And no one comes around.

She just sits there rocking
On her big  porch swing
And she looks into space
And doesn't see anything.

I walk by and smile
But she doesn't respond
her eyes are just focused
on something beyond.

I wish I knew her story and
Could make her smile back
But she's just lost some how
To something in her past.

Today I filled a thermos
with my favorite hot tea
took two pretty cups and saucers
some sugar and lemon with me.

I walked onto her porch
pulled up a table and a chair
Pored two cups of tea
And hoped she was aware

She looked at me in surprise
but lifted the cup   to take a sip
Of my very good hot tea
And a smile came to her lips.

We sat silently drinking our tea,
Which   now was getting  cool.
I told her I had to  depart and
And get the kids from school.

I saw a tear fill her eyes
And I said I'd come again.
And  we could visit longer
And she loudly said : WHEN?

I know I'll go back to visit her
And get to know her better.
I really think she would like that
I'm really glad I met her.

Thanks for this Katy.  It actually brought tears to my eyes.  Would this be based on a true story???

If you were the one who brought a little bit of joy into this ladies life, that was a very nice thing to do.  I bet the lady never forgot that small act of kindness...

Applause

Well we actually kept our afternoon tea going about once a week for several years. And ocasionally I took my children and she enjoyed that.. She had a daughter who married and moved to the west coast and didn't keep in touch with her... She was very lonely.
She got very ill and died .. I hope I made her later years more bearable...
