Admiring the beauty of the surrounding land,
and the home he built with his own two hands.
In his comfortable chair, always facing the east,
for a few precious moments, not a care in the least.
Often daydreaming of someone special and rare,
the perfect reason to place another chair..
Or would the peace he’d known, soon be disturbed?
Would his tranquil life somehow be curbed?
He wondered if things should stay just as they are?
As he searched for the answers beyond the stars.
Just as sure as the changing of the seasons,
A man who sits alone, does so for a reason.
