Cobwebs and Dust

They say he closed up shop
One last time
Went home
And died

He tried to carry on
With the store
His wife had passed
Four years before

He did the best
That anyone can
But his heart was broken
He was a lonely man

The last time
I visited his store
He said he was 90
As he closed the door
