Long Live

I was asked to explain
Above love and its implications
I had no words in store
Yet I tried to explore

It is “m” and “other”
For me and for no other
That filled me with grief
I became breathless and brief

How to explain sea or sky?
They have vastness and depth to try
Who can measure it in any terms?
It was my main worry and concern

We have left her alone
Forced her to live lone
Time has changed
Now old age homes manage

As birds leave their nest
After acquiring best
So feel the parent
When children create absence

I will go step further
And tell bit harsher
“Do cause them no pain”
The sky may refuse to rain

Almighty may dry his purse
You may find only curse
There won’t be any peace
Life may become hell so stop please

Start making amends
Have their blessings and bend
On their knees and seek
Their eyes may speak

“Long live my son”
There are no reasons”
We are happy persons
Be blessed and make your life as heaven

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
