Chantal Lammerts Poems
When We Were Parted
When we were parted…
The wind rustles through the trees,
The pain, more than conscience sees.
Hold aside by every soul,
We’re slowly losing our control.
Our souls united as one,
Our bodies far apart,
First thought, then done,
Trying to fix a broken heart.
Years and years had gone by fast,
Trying to reveal the one that’s caused.
Our lives to separate, our hearts to break,
Willing to forgive that one mistake.
Life has past, worlds went by,
Our hope lives on, goes up high.
Love, at last, never dies,
Even when the red rose ...
What Is Life?
What is life; more than a delay between past and future?
What is future; when life is nothing more than a halt?
Is there anything at all? These thoughts work as a torture,
If it is nothing, is it anyone’s fault?
Did we mess up in the past?
Or are we not as important as we think?
Maybe we should enjoy it as long as it lasts,
And what if it is over in a blink?
