A Heart Forsaken - Poem by Bolami lawal
The symphonies of silence, so deep;
the agonies of pain, so real.
The blemish of a heart; internal.
We walked this path together before;
but now i walk alone,
i have nightmares; so intense.
I have goose too; they remind me of you.
So much a time lost in solitude,
so much more, in want of you;
in every face i see, your image is fixed;
and when i close my eyes, i hear your voice.
The leaves, as they drop; they tell of 'us'....
How far we grew apart, how distance we fell;
the stars, as quiet as they lay;
they say to me you're out of reach....
And in my dream, i saw you;
as you held our family portrait close to heart,
i saw the home we never built,
i saw the war we never won;
but then, you vanished in the air....
The sun shone yet on me and it kindled my world,
i felt the purest kind of warmth; this time,
stronger than i did with you....
I closed my eyes and let the rain wash away my tears,
i let the wind also blow my worries in the sky....
I see hope in the wings of a new day,
i found comfort in the arms of time;
they say there is hope for a tree cut down....
from a lake forgotten JOY is birthed,
in a heart forsaken; LOVE is formed.
