The Past Is Gone

Passing time has brought changes in his life
the old man has no reasons to smile anymore
in one moment fate took his wife from him
he's realizes nothing will be as it was before.

The old man's only companion now is his dog
He can tell by his dogs actions he is sad too
the old man comforts him anyway he can
but he lays around the whole day through.

Then today the old man witnessed a miracle
his dog started playing with his toy bone
maybe the old man's dog was telling him
the past is gone but life continues on.
