Early years, caring for others,
casting her needs aside.
Mind and body in their prime,
ticking clock far from her mind.
His relief, as each month passes,
her desperation hidden inside.
Brimming with wisdom, bursting with love,
she welcomes her second chance.
But her body grows weak, time marches on,
Mother Nature will finally decide.
Flash Fiction - Each Friday, I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. If you would like to join in the fun and games... post your story and report to the boss G-MAN. If you're not interested in contributing a story, feel free to read the other entries. I'm sure any comments you have would be appreciated.
Happy reading and writing!
