The Widow

The Widow
By Valerie D. Staton


Melancholy face
Mascara stained tears fall
Home Going Service

Subtle breeze sauntered
Through bedroom window and kissed
Widow’s somber face

Smell of Lagerfeld
On decedent’s robe brought peace
To her wearied soul

This reminds me of my mother, after my father died. Now she too is gone. Beautiful poem. :)
