My Darkened Room - Poem by Christine Davidson

Through the sighing of the night
My eyes searched the room
The darkened mist a foreign tomb
What remnants left of love's sweet bloom

A tender word
A gesture longed
For love instead of feeling wronged
Oh how our tender hearts once thronged

My child
She throws her arms about
Her small head tries to figure out
Frustrated that she packs no clout

I roll away
Yet still I see
The world that cannot ever be
What now is I, what once was we.
