People Watching

Last time I walked here was over a year ago,
I love it there,
on the weekend I want to go and sit and draw,
and people watch, I like to do that,
young couples holding hands,
walking fast, places to go and people to see,
sometimes there is someone playing guitar,
I smile showing my appreciation,
I like to sit with the elderly,
some are so alone,
they tell me their stories of days gone by,
we share a laugh and sometimes a cry,
I love to see an elderly couple walking together holding hands,
slowly and meticulously they care for one another,
years of together showing how much they are still in love,
I love to see little children as they walk past their parents,
some come right up and say hello,
while others sheepishly hide behind a pant leg,
I love to watch people walking with their dogs
and sometimes the owners look a lot like their pets,
I have never understood carrying a little dog
while you are out for a walk, or when they carry them in a little bag.
I am sure they want to run or walk too.
I like to take pictures of tourists, they are always thrilled when they get a group picture,
I say hello to homeless people, sometimes it is enough to make them smile.
Every one has a story. sometimes just by watching, you can get a sense of them.
Happy, Sad, Lost, Angry, Forgiven, Forgetting, Singing, Laughing, Alone,
Lonely, Boisterous, Shy, Outgoing, Loving, Kind,
and most of all
People Really Want to Feel Needed and Understood,
and Appreciated!
I hope today you make Someones Day,
If I get to draw this weekend,
I will post those drawings.
Have your Very Best  Day Ever!
