A Desert Life

Rating: 5.0
As I watched the sunset in this land
And fading lights dims the desert sand
A time my memory seems so right
To think of my love one's out of sight

In the vastness of this ancient land
Like flaming dots of red in the sand
I miss the busy streets, city lights
The traffic jams and those hurried life
I recall the years when I was young

This poem says it all, the sacrifice you did just to earn a living and to support your family. The lonely life you had experience has been written in this beautiful poem. You made me cry coz once I was also far from my family, but had to stay in order to give them better future. Good job James and congratulations for the talent you have, more power to you!

This is such a poignant poem Jesus, touched my heart significantly. Yes, I too have lost my parents, and many other relatives whom I was close to. It is difficult to go on when they are a memory of yesterday, that you want to relive right now, again. Memories are always bittersweet when we no longer have the ones we love here on earth. Their images in our minds of good and happier times fill our hearts with joy, as tears spill from our eyes, because we can no longer live them on earth. Sorrow filling our hearts and minds with every moment we have lost in time. So touchingly sad, Jesus, yet a beautiful poem at the same time. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn
