Had I Have - Two Wide Wings


Had I have - two wide wings …….
Could fly in that unbound sky,
Floating along with those white flying clouds
To reach to the silvery moon
And to those twinkling little stars.
Perhaps I Could release there-
A bit of my sorrows and pains.

Had I have - two wide wings ……
Would join those fairies in the fairy land
Singing and dancing around them -
Could meet my fiancé whom I miss.
Clasping her within my warm loving hands
Landing a kiss on her cheeks over there.
My fiancé with her red hot face -
Would bash me after staring at me.
I’d beg a pardon there, kneeling before her.

Had I have – two wide wings …..
For sure I’d have reached there
I could cleanse my soul there -
Wiping out my sorrows and my pains.

Had I have - two wide wings …..

    At times wishing I had two wings to escape the sorrows and pain of life
    on earth. Would love to stay aloft forever and feel the feelings of freedom
    and independence so insatiateingly desired. But, alas, there is no escape
    from life while we are living it. Enjoyed the rhythm and melody of this poem,
    Amitava. Great one. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    A very beautiful and haunting write wanting to have two wings.
    If we could take wings and fly to places that we would love to
    be it would give us much pleasures. A lofty wish indeed. I can
    feel your desires and wants. Come down to earth and enjoy
    life good or bad! Nice write. I have a poem called Be Thankful
    please take a look. (Report) Reply

    A poem deeply moving! We all have unsatiated longings and wish to fly away from a world of loneliness and isolation! But such escapism is not possible! We have to face life with stoic courage and accept realities in their stride! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
