The Lonely Poet (a tribute to my mother) - a poem by Audrey Austin

The Lonely Poet
Audrey Austin

She worked hard
throughout her life
shared days of joy
and those of strife
but right or wrong.

That’s how it was for Ruby.

Aging widow
dark of night
she misses her children
and doesn’t feel right
but now alone
with pen she scribes

Writes down
the joy, the pain
scratches out a line
then writes again
but heart and soul
she shares her life
the poet.
