old woman



She sits by the window,
watching time go by.
She thinks of memories past,
it often makes her cry.

A little girl with skipping ropes.
A smile adorns her face.
Now a face she doesn’t recognise,
a stranger takes her place.

Memories of a young lady,
finding her first love so true.
How time passes by
and runs away from you.

Memories of young children,
playing around her feet.
Now all living far away.
With families of their own to keep.

Memories of her husband,
he passed awhile ago.
He often made her smile,
and together they grew old.

Still living in the house,
where all her kids grew up.
Sitting all alone.
Drinking from a small tea cup.

Sitting by the window,
she watches time go by.
Thinking of love she’s had and lost.
A tear falls from her eye.
