Rocking Chair

ELENA kLOPPENBURG

Here so soon.

Years gone to who knows where…

Once I was there, fresh, new, hopeful,

today I am here, faded, expired with only the echo of a life once lived

for company.

Children grown, and long gone,

husband already on that journey.

My rocking chair creaks gently, piecing the silence.

Hands puffed, and wrinkled,

grey hair replaces black.

A million thoughts go through my head

Am I afraid…?

Is it a journey I will like…?

I know I can’t come back once I’m there.

Maybe I’ll see old friends – who knows!

Am I really that old?

My rocking chair whispers the worst

Am I ready…?

I calm my thoughts, close my eyes and wait for an answer…

Thanks for stopping by

Until next time, Sharon
