A Window Of Time Poem by Dave Alan Walker

A Window Of Time

Rating: 4.8


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

Captivating - and haunting - I like this poem... and I'm unsettled by it.
