Through the eyes of a senior citizen
The gaze is short but the distance is long
Vulnerable to the whims of medicine
That long and lonely stare
Into nowhere……

Waiting solitarily
In the brightness of hospital wards
Waiting for those who have long gone

Please don't look into my eyes
For those shadows without darkness
Are just around the corner
