A House Viewing

I viewed a house today
Someone’s place to be sold
What lives did they have
How did they grow old

A home full of memories
It made me feel sad
I hope they’d been happy
I hope they’d been glad

Furniture of a style
From a bygone time
Life was slower
They were in their prime

Surrounded by quality
I could feel the pride
They’d achieved a lot
On life’s short ride

Their private tastes
Revealed to all
Not just close friends
Enters their hall

But the time had come
The end of the line
A new life beacons
I hope it will be fine
