I write what I feel…




Sitting staring into space
Remembering another time and place
Now all alone in her silent world
Peacefully waiting…

The sounds of life pass her by
The hue and cry out in the streets
Birds in the trees fill the air
With their twitterings and tweets

Another time, another place…
Soon she’ll quit the human race
The race of life is almost run
And she accepts what is to come

  5. “The race of life is almost run
    And she accepts what is to come”

    And the winner is …
