I saw her

A Poem by Anjali

I saw her running,
Running away.
I saw her crying,
Crying her tears away.

I saw her coming,
Coming this way.
I saw she was happy,
Happy than ever, yesterday.

I saw her smiling,
And her smiles fade away.
I saw her hope,
As it vanished away.

I saw her looking,
Looking away.
I saw her breathing,
And as it faded away.

I tried to save her,
Putting everything away.
I tried to heal her,
Heal all her scars away.

I needed medicines,
To save her, today.
But, they weren't enough,
Enough to heal her, today.

I saw her walking,
Walking away.
I saw her dying,
Dying away......

nice piece of writing. Does the word "her" representing the hope or any female or anything else?

Wow, that's really impactful and bittersweet. I enjoy the play between memory and the present actions. The structure of the stanzas is also really good for what you were trying to do!
