The Journey

She nears the window to look outside
Recalling the day she was a bride
She was so young when she took those vows
Smiling as they raised quite a few brows

Before too long they had their first child
Becoming parents though they were wild
A beautiful girl to call their own
Never again would she be alone

Another child comes, a handsome boy
Filling their hearts with passion and joy
Together they raised their family
Being parents came naturally

Before long the children went to school
The future world there for them to rule
Seeking new knowledge both day and night
Hoping to save this world from its plight

In the blink of an eye her world changed
Her once complete world now rearranged
The house now empty, the children gone
Her husband now passed, her face is drawn

She sinks back into her preferred chair
With a frail hand she smooths her gray hair
A single tear falls from her blue eyes
Memories soothe her like the blue skies

Closing her eyes, she thinks of her life
Not always easy, sometimes great strife
The passage of time moves all too fast
Before she knew it her time had past.
