She Only Can Remember - Poem by Francis Duggan

She only can remember her loves of the past
And the good times she knew of that for her did not last
In her late forties she does not have children to enrich her life
And to any man she was never a wife
From a car crash she has spend her days in a wheelchair since her physical prime
When she was in her mid twenties this is going back in time
In her prime with shoulder length wavy dark brown hair quite lovely to behold
That is now silver gray in her wheelchair she is growing old
Despite her restricted lifestyle she seems happy enough in her own charming way
On her wheelchair in her verandah she smiles at people passing on the street and bids them a good day
Though luck in life with her it did not stay
She is one of the town's unsung heroines of her one can say
In a car accident of the gift of a fully active life she was denied
And of her one can say luck was not on her side.
