Letting Go.A Poem by Poeticpiers
She sits asleep her wig askew.
She care no more what people think
And lives again the days she knew
The flying years gone in a blink.
She’s just a fresh young girl again.
Before she wed beforse she knew
All of the pleasures and the pain
That only life can teach to you
For fourscore years and seven now
She played a lively active part.
Now she’s content to let it go
To younger ones close to her heart.
Great Grand mama can rest at last
She knows the show will still go on
Set her free to live in the past
Relive again years which are long gone
She sits asleep her wig askew
The family still cherish her
But there is little they can do
Because her mind has gone elsewhere.
