A Cloud Of Rain - Poem by Jasbir Chatterjee

A dark cloud of rain
drifted into my life
And for some time,
I felt good, happy...
I no longer felt lonely.

I thought life would go on happily
In one long, long stretch of time...
But when the cold, harsh
winds of change started blowing,
The cloud of rain
had to drift away...

Life is still going on
In one long, long stretch of time...
I am not lonely.
I can't say I am sad or unhappy.
But you have left a void
That would take me
a long, long time to fill.

    A note of bereavement is expresses at the ending lines, the positive hope is adorable which reflects in the opening lines. A heart felt expression. (Report) Reply

    A realistic view of life, .............at times we feel vacant, a sudden feeling of loneliness overtakes us............
    Not necessarily palpable, but it eats away from within......................

    Like this, but I think the imagery (wind, rain etc) is stereotyped.... so OK, but nothing much new. (Report) Reply

    In life, it is quite natural to experience a kind of vacancy at times! But such an void will soon be filled by something quite engaging! Be hopeful! A very realistic description of life! (Report) Reply

    Although the clouds travel low
    And let the rain knock on windows,
    Still, we know the sun’s love will glow
    To change grey tears into colorful rainbow.
