All Alone
Lines of age
show on her face.
Days gone by
are etched in place.
Her eyes reveal
her inner child.
She looks around
and tries to smile.
People come and
people leave.
Nod of their head
she only sees.
Sitting all alone
is all she’s known.
Forgotten by others,
wanting to go home.
Children won’t come,
they don’t care.
Their tired of her,
they put her here.
Cries out their name
not wanting to blame.
Hopes they’ll come,
her daughter her son.
She sits all alone
eyes fixed ahead.
Jumbled up words
run through her head.
She continues to cry,
afraid and alone.
I hug her, hold her.
She wants to go home.

Such a sad yet beautiful write. Nicely done.

Reviewed by Z McClure
every word and line of this poem squeezed my heart. The cadence really helped create the sense that what is being said is very important. No doubt this write puts into words the feelings and thoughts of more people than we will ever know of. May God use your poetry to speak to our generation and the ones that may follow.

I have seen this happen many times . Its hard to grow old and face the loneliness and dispair of not really being wanted by family.. Your poem touches ones heart and brings the reality of many to light!...M

I'm glad that you are there to hug and hold her, God your Heavenly Father will always bless the works of your hands!

How sad. We seem to always forget our eldery, and that's a shame. I don't know if you like Dan Fogelberg, but he did a song called "Windows and Walls" that described this perfectly.
