Ruminations

She sat on the sea front
Clutching her knees tightly,
Staring at the huge waves,
As they lashed the long shores.
 
Their regular rhythm,
Was music to the ears.
She, a disturbed lady
Tried to calm her fears.
 
The previous day's events,
Left her devastated.
She wondered if she would
Ever forget the pain.
 
Her husband had left her,
To pursue his true love,
A woman years younger
Than her and prettier.
 
A cold wind brushed her face
And she felt ,the presence
Of her deceased mother,
Chanting calming mantras.


When the old lady lived,
She met every challenge
That life presented her,
With the strength of her chants.
 
She was not religious,
Like her mother, so now
She couldn't count on God
To change her messy life.
