Losing You


You were once a part of me.
You were once my other half.


We'd do everything together.
We'd know everything of each other.


Like soul mates on Earth,
We were inseparable.




You were the blanket I'd snuggle in.
You were the ocean I'd swim in.


You were the notebook I'd scribble on.
You were the canvas I'd paint on.


You were the mirror I'd reflect in.
You were the tree I'd shelter in.




Then suddenly what happened?
How did all instantly change?


Spirits were deflated.
Emotions were capsized.


Within a breeze the weather blackened.
Within a flash the picture snapped.




The blanket lost its warmth.
The ocean became Tsunami.


The notebook ran out of pages.
The canvas lost its colors.


The mirror shattered to glass.
The tree was deforested.




Nature destroyed our ring of unity, &
The winds robbed away my reasons to smile.


My wingless being sunk to harsh realities, &
Alas, I experienced bereavement.


Yes, with me you will no longer be present.
I was beginning to accept this sad fact.




Thus came the final rains,
Thus arrived the dusk of the long night.


Emotions were released.
Feelings were vented.


Appreciating your absence wasn't easy,
But Alas I selflessly wish, for your better path ahead.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
