The Widow

The Widow by Lori Lipsky 

The two hold hands 
Each evening 
As they stroll 
By her home 

From her kitchen window 
She sees them pass 
And remembers
A better time

Do you have a widow in your life?

  1. Another very touching poem. I do have a young widow in my life. The picture is perfect with it.

    • My neighbor was younger than I am now when she lost her husband. Whenever she mentions his name, her voice has the sweetest tone. It’s obvious she cared for him deeply.

  2. Beautiful. It also applies to a woman whose husband is slowing leaving her because Alzheimer’s is stealing him away.
