This is the first poem I’ve tried writing without a rhyme scheme…just something different. 🙂
She looks up at the sky, wandering
As she treads upon the crisp leaves
In the summer breeze,
Searching for answers to her relentless thoughts
Why does this world
seem so lost,
Are memories all we live for?
Neither can we foresee what lies ahead,
Nor can we change what has already been.
She gazes at the little girl,
Prancing, with silvery laughter
It seemed so familiar
Once it had been her,
Now has faded into oblivion.
All she cherishes are the memories,
She fears they too may end here,
Etched deep within her heart.
