Brief writing about being old, alone and unseen
She Sat Alone

They didn’t know she was beautiful.

Lines and wrinkles hid the freshness of youth.

They didn’t know she was strong.

Cane and chair became her companions.

They didn’t know she was witty and quick to laugh.

Silence seemed to surround her.

They didn’t know the life she lived.

The things she had done.

The things she could do.

They didn’t know she was loved.

She sat alone.

No one came.

They didn’t know.

The didn’t hear.

They didn’t see.
