flowers in her hair

the light faded from her eyes
silver threads in her hair
she looks at us questioning
are we really here
her memories are scattered
her dreams left behind
searching and searching
for another time
she tries to remember
but life is a blur
we look in her face
it is no longer her
the woman so vibrant
with delightful song
who threw off her shoes
and danced all night long
the parties on the weekend
the wine would flow
flowers in her hair
where did she go?
where is the smile
that lit up her face
how sad it is
she just looks in space
we can only hold her hand
and stroke her hair
and wish one day
she’ll know we’re here
she mumurs softly
and begins to hum
it lasts but a moment
and then she is done
we bring her flowers
put one in her hair
pray she knows
we are here

flowers in her hair
