The Secret Rendezvous

 

 

THE SECRET RENDEZVOUS

 

The Secret Rendezvous

 

A tattered structure stands aloft

Against a wintry sky

Seclued in a barren woods

With weeds grown up so high.

 

Neglected by the passing time

And years of snow and rain

The wind howls through the broken doors

And shattered windowpane.

 

A ray of light bursts through the cracks

No longer cold and gray

The warmth of laughter fills the house

And rooms turn bright and gay.

 

Back so many years ago

To a house so young and new

A little girl with teddy bear

Holds secret rendezvous.

 

They stayed so close together

As close as two could be

And in a secret room they'd meet

To sip on make-believe tea.

 

For just a moment, time stands still

As memories fill the air

And a frail old lady fades away

In a battered rocking chair.

 

As she dreams, the angels come

To lift her from her chair

And cradled in her arms they find

An old stuffed teddy bear.
