Stranger in the Park
I noticed the old man sitting on a park bench sobbing his eyes out.
I looked around and saw a woman near him look at him briefly and then turned the other way, like she didn’t see anything, while another man was visibly embarrassed.
I just wished I could take away his pain. I think he must be truly sad to cry in public.
Wonder, what has distressed him. On second thoughts, I don’t need answers, I just want to comfort him.
So, I got up and sat near him, till he smiled, looked into my eyes and petted me.
