One More Time

Smiles - 103 words
Mary Ann Loo

She settles in the armchair beside the window,
gazing at the wintry street outside.
People bundled in heavy coats and muted scarves
scurry about with their lives,
passing each other,
without acknowledging,
Are we all alone together? she wonders.
She takes a sip of hot chocolate from the mug in her hands,
her attempts to revel in the warmth emanating through her core
impeded by the chill deep within.
It's a brand new day,
a chance to begin again,
once again.
All is not lost,
she whispers to herself
one more time.
She smiles,
but her eyes are so so sad.

Smile - Nat King Cole
