SAD SOUL BY: MIGDALIA TORRES RIVERA
By: Migdalia Torres Rivera
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.
