All Alone

The park bench is bare
Of warmth and smiles
Of those who deeply care
Commuting over many miles

The playground is still
No toddlers nor munchkins
No giggling nor shouting fills
Only creaking swings, rattling bins

The home is chilly; devoid of love
No tantrums, sharp words nor tears
No hot stew bubbling on the stove
All alone while the monsoon wails near
