Letting Go.

Letting Go.

A Poem by Poeticpiers

rhyming quatrains


Letting Go.


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.

Fitting, as my own Mother awaits her trip to the 'Sweet Bye and Bye".
Thank you for a great poem.
