ALL THAT SHE SAID

So she was in her last few days
Like a child with a strong memory of home 
Sold to a distant land to be raised 
She always stood numb as she gazed 
As though she saw her life slip before her eyes
Distracted by a smile not so hard to find
Her tender skin made it uneasy to trace
The words with which to count her losses and gain
She wore an innocence that carried a face
Shielding a heart that was full of pain
With a blurry eyes she stretched to see
A future that now strayed too far to feel
Her footprints became so light and few
And were washed away by the wind that blew.
