poems by Donald James Dolby
Sally
A charming smile, rarely used of late
Suppressed by life and all its woes
When allowed to flicker on her face
Glimpsed what could have been but no-one knows.

Dealt life's tough hand, or so she thought
Struggled through life, her promise to fulfil
Always dreamed of better things
And the green of the grass over the hill.

A lifelong love, for love it was
Saw many years of companionship
Hard to be alone, first time in her life
Hope for peace at last found on her final trip.
