Gone - Poem by Maria Sharon Moemise


To Doc.
By Sharon Moemise

I searched through sheaves of paper
But found nought
I searched amongst the non existents
Cos so I thought
I looked left then right then searched all around
But I saw none
I found the notice in a small paragraph, saying
That you were gone.

My heart sank to my lowest point
How I miss you
I was searching so long just to let u know
That I love you
The time I wasted can never be gained
So I'll let you be
Be at peace wherever you may have gone
Just please remember me

    This poem is deeply affecting. Its theme is so universal, that is, there is always unfinished business with a relative who has passed but the time has run out. It's sad but true and we can only console each other for the loss. You are mourning your loss but also extending to us readers the consolation of sharing your experience. The intimacy of your speech to your late father is so positive. I have no doubt he will fulfill that request you make in the last line, and you have fulfilled your duty to remember him in writing this poem. (Report) Reply

    The poem brings the tragedy of a lovely relationship terminated by death. Very poignant tale.
