Darkness

Darkness always descends
Another day complete
So much left undone
Emptiness replete

Tasks not attended
Things left unsaid
Ample time tomorrow?
Too soon calls the bed

Children grow quickly
Burden of work awaits
Family time is fleeting
Rush out the starting gate

Alone now in silence
Memories of what surround?
Old, cold and lonely
Without another's sound

Wishing things were different
Life's choices glare regret
But looking back knowing
The sole course was set

Darkness always descends
Desires incomplete
Nothing left to do
Emptiness replete
