Time

She sits by the window,
Waiting, watching,
Sunsets come and go,
Sighing, flying.

A single strand of pearls,
Now warm, now cold,
Pearls strewn across the floor,
Now together, now alone.

Hot chocolate and laughter,
Sipping, skipping,
Rum and coca-cola,
Slipping, missing.

No one by the window,
Waiting, watching,
Lifetimes come and gone,
Sighing, flying.
