Wearily it sits beside my bed
Glaring in its emptiness
Like my life, white and blank
Without a need for reassess

I promised I would record
The milestones of my life
Too quickly did I go from maid
To mother and to wife

No time to log the memories
Of life lived in daily moment
I moved it from drawer to box
Keeping silent in my lament

Time passed so quickly then
And now? I am alone in my fear
So moving on, I dug into the past
To find the blank diary here

I placed a pen near the book
On the table beside my bed
And now in the dark of night
It fills my heart with dread

Did my life have meaning at all?
Did I live it in the external?
Did my mind have thoughts at all?
Or was it as blank as this journal

I don't keep a journal either, I've tried and only write sporadically....very interesting thoughts in this, Sharon, but trust me your mind is definitely not blank!

God bless America, my home sweet home.
