A soft glow emanated from the lamp post.
It stood as a sentinel outside her bedroom window.
Her parents kissed her goodnight in its muted light.
Fairy shadows danced along the walls as her babies slumbered.
Her husband held her in his strong arms within its gentle glow.
Its soft light comforted her through the sorrow of his passing.
The city was replacing the lamp posts with bright streetlights.
Sadness filled her for those who would never know its warmth.
Wrapped in its glow one last time, she wearily closed her eyes.
Tenderly carried to her eternal place of peace.
