All alone
You wait

A white room
No friendly face
You want to leave this place.

Hope glimmers faint
Unseen or heard
Promises made
Mistrusting of the word

Where is home
There with your wife
If you can’t be with her
What is the point of life?

Days drag on
Pull you to another morn
A way to escape
Your only means
To say no, to scorn

Your voice it goes
A silence deafens
No need to say again
You’ve found release
You’ve let it go
Float high into the heavens

    Totally beautiful and I think that this is my favourite poem of yours ever. So haunting, it gave me goosebumps and made me cry – reminded me of my Granddad in his nursing home. Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought 🙂 x
