Shadows Had No Mercy

Shadows had to lead their way,
To fulfill the perpendicular array,
Of the sand go to sand,
And none belong to land.
I was 12 at 12 by 12th April,
Noon, I saw brutal death of real,
Snatching away your soul,
No mercy like you were my all.
Only gambling for some few,
so much few breaths, you!
You wished to shake me a bade,
Shadows snatched you instead.

So called life on earth,
None escapes it's wrath,
Mummy you left me so juvenile,
Yet I had to cross life Nile,
Years could not pull you back,
Neither could days remain stuck.
You did the worth of remembrance, The equivalent of you presence,
And the exact of your virtues;
I embrace your great values.
Shadows sneaked in,
To filch me you, my sailing fin!

We loved you in our view,
But God loved to the view in you,
So much did we value the flesh,
Than Almighty, who did thresh.
We pray that you smile forever,
In eternity of heaven whenever,
Quench from the brim ocean milk,
Walk on the snow cotton silk,
To enjoy the ever dripping honey,
Help the saints hum a symphony.
Without you alot we miss,
Mama rest in peace.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
