newly become a wraith,
walks among the stones.
Seemingly lost, yet looking
for something she vaguely remembers
during this dimming day like all the others,
this oncoming night, resembling many long past.
What she wishes to find does not come easily to her mind
yet is all consuming on her psyche.
The weight on her heart is painful,
but she must continue,
for once she sights it, she will have tranquility,
after so much searching.
So she seeks, seeks, seeks…..
Ah, there it is
set in the ground.
So common looking
like all the others.
Yet, this one is special
because of him.
She digs and digs down into the earth
knowing she will once more finally touch him.
50 years of searching
and then she takes him into her arms,
this tiny thing,
once again to love him as before.
