Sometimes I See Her

Sometimes i see her in the park off of the street
And she gives me a cheery hello when we meet
Ann in her late eighties with a charm of her own
Of life's good and bad days she is one who has known
To her late husband Joe she was a good wife
Ten years ago to cancer he lost his battle for life
Their only child Jim as a twenty years of age man
Came home in a coffin from the war in Vietnam
Ann who has known in her life laughter and tears
With the Salvation Army has been helping poor people for years
Always willing to help people who are mentally and financially down
Though sad to realize people like her are never the celebrated of any town
Of her a beautiful person is all i can say
She is one i see often though not every day.
