as the lights go out

she holds her head up
as the lights go out.
her love of life still
gleaming.
she fades so ever quietly
as others mill around her.
she holds on for those
whose life she fills.
she sees them growing
sadder
she breathes a little
harder,
does not want them
to see but what she was,
as what she is draws
closer

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
