Out of Reach

Above on the top shelf

Beyond worn fingertips

A long walk too slow

Missing the appointment

Reading the advertisement

But the job had been filled

Timidly raising his hand

But others are picked

The phone remains silent

Only noise from TV

Prescription prices spiked

Beyond his small budget

A beautiful setting sun

Lingered then vanished

Against the cold wind

His warm heart full

At the end of the night

Love fuels the next day

For those in darkness

He prayed for the light
