My Empty Nest** - Poem by Milica Franchi De Luri

Why does sadness surrounds me?

Why are my eyes wet with tears?

Why is joy absent from my heart?

Why emptiness abides

where there once was abundance?

With each departure part of me departed

part i can not retrieve
.
Gone forever in a basket

were memories are gathered

collecting dust and cobwebs.

Revisited only by ponderings.

When the heart is yearning;

to touch, to hold, to see, to hear;

the cry, the laughter,

the yelling, the pleading, the silence.
Every you were you were redy to live
to go with your new found love,
to mouve to your new place,
to go away


i was happy for you

just my heart was bleeding

knowing it had to let you go

to travel your own journey

For i had my time

and i did my best

Now, i know you must do the rest.

Your calling was stronger

then my holding.

And i don't want to cling

i want you to have the best of everything.

    the concept of nest is very meaningful/empty is is the inner vacuum (Report) Reply

    Ah, Milica - my daughter went to Melbourne a few years ago and that was how I felt...the poem captures that feeling so well... I wonder if this is your situation too
    or if you are just singing, as a poet, for all of us... (Report) Reply
