the wait

the wait

Her heart no longer mourns
For the life she had before
She was just an observer
Watching from a distant shore

Years have been unkind to her
Leaving a shell in her place
Love snatched away too soon
Haunting sadness on her face

Quietly sobs when she's alone
Thinking no one else can hear
Family feels her pain daily
Yet they can't erase her fears

Longing to see her smile again
Hoping for better days ahead
In their hearts they know
Peace will come when she is dead

Her spirit died years ago
When he was taken away
Knowing she belongs by his side
As they listen to her pray

She tells them all is Okay
They know that she pretends
She is trying to protect them
As she waits for life to end
