The process of getting old can be sore yet tenderThe memories of past can be hurting yet enjoyableA lady that's aging yet recalling the wrongs committedUsing magic in the name of hymn to be at leisure butStill worried about what she heard at 34
Sometimes, when light is seen in the dark, it's not always the egressThe old lady has a piece of herself that's dying Conceivably the house is also gloomySometimes, what's shining isn't treasure What's shining can be detrimental too, sometimes!
Things gravitate to lose value when you are losing yourselfThe old lady's haleness dwindles ceaselesslyMy heart wrenches while she drenches in tormentAnd so does her grand-daughter's heart
Breaks out a gut wrenching feelingThe air sounds like a sudden sighAnd a silent cry reaches up the skyLike autumn, everything seems alluring yet tragic
Reminders can even be drawn from the words of a 9 year oldWho is Thrilled and excited for the jauntWearing classic country dress with his dadAnd playing around with his AuntUpon arriving the adolescent takes a name of a womanAchieving attention instantly from herDrawing a reminder in her mind of the look on her mother's face Little does she knows, her mother's standing deadpan holding back for her to get back!
