Testo for absent friends - genesis

Sunday at six when they close both the gates
a widowed pair


Still sitting there


Wonder if they're late for church

And it's cold
so they fasten their coats and cross the grass.

They're always last.



Passing by the padlocked swings


The roundabout still turning


Ahead they see a small girl

On her way home with a pram.



Inside the archway
the priest greets them with a courteous nod.

He's close to God.

Looking back at days of four

Instead of two...Years seem so few.

Heads bent in prayer

For friends not there.



Leaving twopence on the plate


They hurry down the path and out the gate

And wait to board the bus

That ambles down the street
