The years passed quickly
Each one faster than before
Hours flew by
Soon there would be no more

She toiled very hard
Working on the land
Her face was wrinkled
Rough were the palms of her hand

Her husband passed on
Children moved away
She now treasured every moment
Every single day

Old fashioned was she
A woman of pride
Always told the truth
Never did she lie

Could not understand
How things were so rearranged
People so different
The world had certainly changed

She walked the path
Of the righteous …always eager to please
Prayed every day
Down on her knees

She was often lonely
Missed her family and friends
Still she appreciated life
And would till the end

She knew the day was coming
To unburden her load
She knew that soon
Would be the End Of The Road
Thanks very much Sally Omar :)

    Sorin, my friend, you have a wonderful eye. This image is emotional and soul fillling. Great monochromatic tones. The symphony of textures is superb. I love the composition. Her dark and stark clothing against the soft values of the background color is so, so gorgeous.The lighting emerges unto the image but directs no attention away from the subject. Love it. Bravo.
