They break my heart,
for I see myself in them.
Someday, I might be alone.
We women tend to outlive our men.
When the world forgets me, I pray—
You will remember me. 

Visit me daily, so I am not alone.
Speak to me of happier times.
Surround me with others who understand.
Let my caretakers be kind.
Do not forget me.
For I am never alone
as long as You are with me.
