A Cloud Of Rain - Poem by Jasbir Chatterjee

A dark cloud of rain
drifted into my life
And for some time,
I felt good, happy...
I no longer felt lonely.

I thought life would go on happily
In one long, long stretch of time...
But when the cold, harsh
winds of change started blowing,
The cloud of rain
had to drift away...

Life is still going on
In one long, long stretch of time...
I am not lonely.
I can't say I am sad or unhappy.
But you have left a void
That would take me
a long, long time to fill.

    Hearttouching words straight out of the heart. It is so heard to fill the void left by the absence of a loved one. Time heals surly but slowly. (Report)Reply

    In the span of life void often appears and does vanish naturally when there is engaging. One shouldn't be worried on account of this. Beautiful poem shared. Thanks. (Report)Reply

    Well, sweet memories left once, remain for ever, even after the source is gone. A very good and novel theme dealt with sweet and simple word play. (Report)Reply

    It would be an existential absurdity to conceive of life without 'ups and down'. Insightful depiction of disappointment in the bliss of love ❤ elegantly penned from inner recesses of the heart. Thanks for sharing Jasbir. Please read my poem POETIC MASTERPIECE. (Report)Reply

    Life is still going on
    In one long, long stretch of time...
    I am not lonely.
    I can't say I am sad or unhappy.
    But you have left a void
    That would take me
    a long, long time to fill.

    A nice poem talking of ups and downs, meetings and partings.
    Well furnished, a very touchy poem.
    Thanks.
