I was looking for a certain file last night and I came across this poem. I thought I wrote it for my blog but
I could not find it so if this is a repeat, please forgive me. My computer says I created it last month. I remember thinking of a certain friend in connection with it.
Amid thoughts that wander, stray and ramble
And memories all so poignant still
She sits alone rocking gently
With sinking heart and tear-filled eyes.
And faltering steps, she strolls through time.
She dreams, envisions and revisits
Those yesteryears forever gone
A distant past though unforgotten
A life of pleasures and delights
A life of sunshine - and of shadows
When life was full and graced with love.
Those days are gone but she remembers
Those intense moments of lows and highs
A steady stream of tears and laughter
Youthful spirits, exuberance, joy
A life that's now but a memory.
She sits - and rocks - alone!
