Theme: Day

Long



A long day
To go without him

Not just this day

I'm just wondering
How many more days
To go without him


(thoughts of an old widow)

Based on bereavement / separation / seclusion faced by women who lose their life partner after many years of marriage. It hits them hard and they find it hard to cope with this grave loss, finding no charm in living.

Like many of my other pieces of writing, this poesy is also based on role-playing.

I try to impersonate as many characters as I can, as and when I see them in life.
