On her husband's grave
So many dreams now no moreLife can never be like beforeMoments shared just memoriesYonder is life’s other shoreThe river of time flows fast and swiftRudderless in it is life adriftNo one to care no one to shareThe remaining years no more a giftEach day now a wearisome treadNow not you someone insteadA faked smile a formal laughYour memories now a walking staffWith weary heart I bide my timeFrom a life now not sublimeWhen evening shadows lengthen onI too shall die, die forlorn .....
