I hope that this doesn’t offend…it is an attempt to voice emotion through words rather than promote or judge human behaviour.
Her Face is Old and Wrinkled
Her face is old and wrinkled, yet he knows her so well.
His hand trembles as he strokes her hair
So strong and so beautiful; she has always been his anchor
He prays for forgiveness and takes a deep breath
Her eye meets his, they are full of steel
He wants her to stop him but he knows he must proceed
Her breathing is laboured, she suffers so much
He curses his hand that clutches the pillow
Her once gleaming eyes close for the last time
His eyes lose control as he carries out love’s last wish
Her face is so old, yet he knows her so well
He looks at his shaking hands, knowing he will never feel again.
