Old Woman – Your Eyes

Comments (0) April 2019 KW Magazine, Poetry

When I look into your eyes,
I see decades…
you as a spark-
not yet a raging fire.
Pains and triumphs… mistakes of Life.

I look at your face, now old and worn…
marked by time and error… time and error….
Old woman, your eyes tell me of lies
I have only dreamed…
Adventure, love and broken staffs…
passions fading in your eyes…
pools of emotion never swum.

In your mirrors… and in your mirrors
I see fear.
Could the world forget you?
Let the fire die?
Yes.
Yet
have no fear…
Old woman…
your eyes….
