A Window Of Time - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Looking through a window
where time had stopped
I see my mother calling

Calling for me
to see where I had been
I see myself run to her
I feel a sense of shock

I shout for them
to look at the window

I see their disbelief
as they look right at me
Then they disappear
right in front of me

Right up until her death
My mother would always talk
of a ghost at the window
that looked just like me

    I think it happens to all elderly people due to dementia that they see somebody is watching them, somebody passing by the closed window, somebody lying on the top of the loft. (Report) Reply
