The Bench

In the silence, I sit

this bench has seen many things

some I will never know

in this park

in this place

How long has it been here?

What tales could it tell?

It has survived

the wind, the rain,

the snow, the sun

It has been here

for whoever

whenever it was needed

to rest, to talk

to share, to find peace

I do not always choose this bench

I like to sit in different places

get another view

another perspective

of the park

and maybe of my life
