#Writephoto – Portal

Portal – Image by Rebecca M. Douglass

Looking back I realise,

That old age is like a puddle,

Reflecting what I once did see.

The high and the lows,

The dramas and the triumphs,

What was and what could have been.

But just like that puddle,

The memories are not as deep,

As once they had been.

Sometimes I still hear the laughter,

But most times it is but a glimpse,

Of what has been.

My children gaze at me,

With sad, worried, eyes,

But they don’t see what I see.

Perhaps my life is but a puddle,

But plenty of rain,

Has fallen around me.
