A star free falling from the sky 

A steam of tears in sodden eye 

A grounded heart and urge to fly 

She contemplates her life 


A flower shaded from the sun 

A deadly always loaded gun

Some memories of the day she won 

She contemplates her life 


Her hopes and dreams will stall not end

An iron will that just won't bend 

Still searching for that special friend 

She contemplates her life


A razor blade has lost it's edge 

A garden with surrounding hedge 

She steps on to the window ledge 

And contemplates her life 


So proud she won't go all the way 

Will live to see a brighter day 

It's by my side she's vowed to stay 

She compliments my life

      A poem that teeters on the edge of emotion the reference to the razor edge and window ledge give an edginess to the poem. The tension is dissipated in the last stanza. Well done
