The years of mere conflict and pain; were so visible in Ms.Miles face? 

Her sagging skin, her puffy eyelids, her pale lips

It seems as if time had taken its toll on her.
The visible wrinkle forehead and her sad smile

As time could be read in, it was also visible she had suffered a small stroke

Ms. Samantha Miles such a kind a gentlewoman

She didn’t care to hide her signs of aging, instead, it was now the golden years that kept her going

As she brushed her long dark hair, she smiled to see it was now becoming a frost winter color

She lived alone with only two cats, but the demons in her head would not subside  

Instead, they would always accompany her sad and lonely life  

She would be a breath a sigh of relief just at the thought of that (“God Sending Off Day”).  

I look upon the golden years full of grace and growing old with such grace.  

Needless to say, a Sad Soul will accompany her in her eternal journey today

Farewell, to my Sad Soul, whom we will meet again in heaven someday.

I have met such women, and it is amazing how sad they can be. To retain the sadness is an amazement to me. You have captured her and made her alive to me. Good job, Migdaila!
