I’ve opted for just the Poetry Challenge here –
Write a poem up to 15 lines long that has a rhyming pattern of ABAB and is inspired by feelings of nostalgia.
You can find details of more of them here!
I remember you sitting in this chair
Every day for what seemed eternity,
The sunlight catching your snow-white hair,
I felt you slipping away from me.
Your body here, your mind elsewhere,
I wonder where in time you’ll be.
Happiness surrounds you there
I see you smile at a memory,
I hold your hand to show I care,
Hoping you see what I see.
Shadows linger, hearts laid bare,
Acceptance of what will be will be.
So many things we still can share
When your thoughts filter back to me,
I’ll be sitting here in your chair.
