 A Reminder of Her Life


Sheltered from the sultry rays

By a magnificent oak tree

There sat a dying lady

Reflecting upon the sweet.


Trickling down her forehead

A single bead of sweat

Threatening her vision

As she quietly wept.


Don’t sweat the small stuff

She’s known to be tough.

A quick wipe of the hand

Her one last stand.


Maintaining her focus

Beyond the sweetness of light

Her crystal clear vision

A reminder of her life.

You built a bravery of personality into the main character of your poem gives courage to the rest of us who are either facing the reality of death of ourselves or those we love. Thank you for sharing.
