A Lover From The Past! - Poem by Raouf Reda

When I saw her that night
I tried to act like I’m aright

It was an echo from the past
Merely a shadow cast

Through the crowed my eye captured her
Stealing my heart & soul “that is unfair”

I trembled in anticipation
Expecting what, I did not know!

But I was suddenly aware
That for her i will always care!

The Love we’ve shared
Nor have her been spared

The resounding of the haunting echo!
Made my spirit shout out with a Prayer: -

Oh, it’s the whisky!
It’s nice to know she is there
But she can’t belong to me”
(Could my lover hear?
Or was she too in fear?)

I faced my dread and further pled
Remember thou, the year that’s past
And think ye not, she’s come at last
Neither of us can be free
Why think thou she come for thee?

Can I not say how very much?
I’m always longing for her touch?
Or how I still love her so much?

My Angels told me don’t be a fool!
Save your ego by playing cool!

Go wipe those tears that blind your eyes
Lest you reveal the soul that cries
And the pain that sears thee down so deep

I must not let her know why I weep!
Oh lost lover of mine, my heart doth sorrow
If not today return tomorrow!
