The Lady Next Door

Tags: lady, age

She sits and waits

She does not know for what

She dreams of yesterday

Of love and laughter

And a life full of smiles

You can see it in her eyes

The mist of tears shinning true

When you call out to her

And she looks up at you

She is well past her prime

An old lady most would say

Just waiting to die

When the door opens

Her grandkids have come by

She is full of life once more

With smiles and hugs and kisses

Till each one leaves

Then she slowly fades away

To her own world once more

The lady in the rocker

Who lives next door
