My Companion

My Companion

When one has a loss of someone he loves
He feels so alone
lost in dispair
One needs a companion that helps to communicate through the air
My companion has a friend
Who we call a mouse
With the click - click the world has no bounds
I can see, hear, and read the news of the world
Play games and see my messages - their sights and their sounds
I can play and learn
I never get bored
Hours seem like seconds in the joy of my entertainment
I want to thank my companion and his little mouse
They have helped me through the loss of my spouse.
