She is alone in the fine old home.
Though they wished to remain,
Though she clung to their hands,
One by one they were gone;
No blade of grass knew
They had crossed the wide lawn.

"Why does she stay there ...
She can't use the space?
Isn't she lonely in the old place?"
Well meaning words ... she alone understands
That rooms packed with memories
Of smiles and tears,
Of voices and faces, have no room for fears.
She isn't frightened by sounds and squeaks,
She knows the language the old house speaks
To the wind and the rain.
Nothing is strange ... through each window and door
Is the same friendly view
That her mother's eyes knew.
The carpet's deep plush holds her steps in embrace,
She hears the gay greeting from the tall clock's face.

Though they have gone ... and with them laughter,
Home things hold comfort until she follows after.
