Hospital Cafe:--By Jack Horne--England

Hospital Cafe:

Sorrow sat at this table;
tears dripped down onto it
from eyes too blurred to see,
as trembling fingers fumbled 
with a bereavement booklet,
and pale lips sipped tea
that tasted only of loneliness.

Those at other tables turned away
fearing sorrow should sit with them...
...next.

Jack Horne enjoys reading and writing poetry.
