She Looks

by Mac McGovern

She awoke,
he was passed away from her.

Wondering the halls,
searching rooms,
dirty,
unused,
cold and damp,
she looks for him.

Outside,
the grounds are vast,
courtyards,
where many elaborate events
echoed joyous laughter,
echo no more, further frustrate
her search.

She looks for him,
for forty years she conducts
this ritual,
refusing to accept what all
know.

Her mind sees only one vision,
she looks for him,
knows he has passed away from her,
knows he has not gone far,
and soon,
she awoke,
he lay next to her,
she looked no more.
