A Friend's Letter To Me - Poem by Yewande Adedokun

After the silence of my heart's echo almost deafened me
And the darkness of it terrifying me
I saw the newness of it all in the eyes of a young girl
If you are keen to know, till now I don't know how to tell

The company of a sad me is needed for life if possible
A side I never have to help me as much as I desire to be stable
Then there comes the sense of hope
Coming to me like the rays of light to lead me home

It does not seem dark anymore
I feel I will be fine
Because at dawn I wake to a thought
This light again I will find

    Lovely piece of poetry depicting the sudden hope of one at deplorable low ebb of life, inspired by a beautiful relationship newly embraced. A well articulated poem insightfully penned with conviction. Thanks for sharing Yewande. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
