Reflections of love stray
To bygone days
Of yesteryears interlude
When romance set her mood.

Reflections of love long past,
Her first love and last,
Now only daydreams in time,
Fond memories kept in mind.

After so many lonely years,
Countless nights of tears,
And the heartache of his leaving,
Long ago she stopped grieving.

A widow of a shattered romance
She lives alone not by chance,
She will live out the days of life
In her imagination as his wife.

Men have knocked upon her door
But only amused, nothing more,
She is contented being alone,
Allowing no other into their home.

The home shared many years ago
With her love that now lies low,
They lay him ever gently down,
Forever he sleeps in hallowed ground.

At a grave in a stand of trees
Behind the home at evenings breeze,
She kneels by where her love lies,
Placing a rose as she cries.
