I Wanted to Tell Her it Was Okay

old lady1

(Embarrassed by her age.)

Our eyes met briefly
just a moment in time
her eyes old, observing,
weeping a lifetime already
mine, young, craving for more
she stared a split second longer
then turned away
embarrassed by my gaze, her age
I wanted to tell her it was okay
but it wasn’t
