The Lady By The Window…

She stands by the window at sunset every day

A ritual she has embraced since he passed away

She lifts her head towards the sky

Sadness still resides in her wandering eyes

In her hand she carries a folded note

How her day went by in details she wrote

It was one of their many daily affairs

 Things they did they always had to share

She reads it out loud laughing at times

But memories come rushing she silently cries

She closes her eyes and whispers good-bye

As she opens her hand for the note to fly

The words she wrote have to be free

There’s another place they have to be

The holly wind shall carry them away 

To the world beyond where the lonely souls stay

    Sweetly poignant. Beautifully touching, Sam.

    You have been busy! My mail box is full of unread treasures from you. Yum! I have been working on making a series of ebooks from my blog. I have a practice one up now which does not include graphics. The next one will…or perhaps a second version without as well for people who want to print it easier. I also have been writing a lot lately. Seems they just keep pouring out of my little pen. hugs, pat
