I cannot attend on your wedding day....


The last time i saw you
was when you were still a kid
holding tightly tn your
mama's skirt,

life has kept me busy
constant travels make me forget
plans are many mountains
and victories are few like
diamonds kept preciously inside
a locker,

and then i get a card and i open it.
you're getting married and
it will be your grand day
and that i must attend so that
we can all be happier again

but life has kept me busy
constant travels make me forget
plans are many mountains
and victories are few like
diamonds kept preciously inside
a locker,

oh, i get puzzled, i forget faces and
names because i want to stay here forever
and there are so many things missing
markers removed, boundaries kept

i am old, and it is sad.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
