Little by Little

Little by little
She withers away
The light in her eyes
Fades
Like a flower,
Petals droop
Under the weight
Of the densely –packed
blooms
and seasons end,
The sun shelters
behind the rain
and treetops
gather the fallen,
Collecting the broken tears
Folding still
Little by little
Her mind seeks the soft space
Of shade.
