I Cannot Wait Any More.

Now I have lost all my patience
I cannot wait any more.

I learned to live – with my tears,
And to live with myself alone.

Neither there is any dream left
Nor any hope anymore

Not even any complaint
With any restlessness around.

If anything residual
That remains in my heart.

That is my love for you
Which will remain for ever

I kept my love very carefully,
Inside my heart’s core.

Now I’ll live with the love you left
Silently alone.

    I love this poem of silent love. The first two lines of your poem speaks of an impatient mind, the last two of a serene, silent and settled one.
    A nice poem to read and enjoy.
    I loved and agree with the comments of Valerie Dohren and Soulful Heart. (Report) Reply
