Modern Queen

She sat by the window with her silver crown
And gazed outside at what was around
A bird at the feeder, a squirrel in a tree
A car driving by, another, now three
She sat and gazed as the hours passed by
For this queen didn't worry about time
In life's simple pleasures, she now partakes
From watching the birds, to eating some cake
The minutes pass by, she cherishes each
As ninety-five years is no simple feat 
Her days are now filled enjoying the sun
Broken only by the nurses med runs

    I work at an assisted living facility for seniors with dementia, and that's where I got the idea for this poem. That's awesome! Sorry to hear she passed though =(
