"Still"

A Poem by masqued_muse
"

Poem that describes the yet smoldering yearnings of an older, and not settled heart.

"
 When an older woman thinks,
  there is hazy confusion
  of days and nights with no rest.
 And as she blinks,
  away the illusion
  tightness fills her chest.
 When an older woman sighs,
  she may still envision
  little ones at her feet.
 Her tears become spies,
  seeking permission
  to make the memory complete.

 When an older woman talks,
  laughter masks sorrow,
  the depths she refuses to share.
 She goes for long walks,
  debating with tomorrow
  and unfulfilled cupboards to bear.
 When an older woman prays,
  her faith stands alone,
  but the flame of the candle burns strong.
 The dawn's harshest rays
  feed spirit and bone,
  and strength is found in its song.

 When an older woman schemes,
  with stray stars colliding,
  and tempests that threaten to grow.
 In her wildest dreams
  a galaxy is  hiding
  in the woman you think you know.

Wow. As a man of "a certain age" I can assure you it is not only women who feel this way. A beautiful piece. Perhaps one thst can only be appreciated by those who have experience.
