Can't See the Sun

1st October 2022

I’m standing in the sun, watching clouds grow,
they descend on me as a mist, taking those I know,
every day a wave, washing a little more away,
the sand beneath my feet, memories astray.

A terrible thing the lapping, being slowly set adrift,
only childhood memories remain, through which I now sift,
my mind is trying to look back,
…but the waves,

…they have washed away the trail,

…and I’m confused,

…and I’m very scared,

…and I sense, I won’t prevail.


I sense I won’t prevail,
(a sketch by my daughter).
