Adieu! My Love - Poem by Valsa George

Through the clamour of distressful days
I live alone in soulful memory of my Love
In vain, I keep my door ajar
For her light footsteps, once more to fall

On my lonely bed, I turn around
For her warmth, I shall never here enjoy
Through the dingy corridors, I stray alone
After elusive shadows, I wander forlorn.

I know she is in some far Paradise
Her eyes feasting on the glory of each new dawn
With fadeless flowers blossoming all around
And endless mysteries in all marvel enshrined

Though an emptiness, often engulfs me
I am reminded of the constancy of her love
That she often avowed between tender sighs
As I lay silent on her cleaving breast

I know, I am now a weary traveller
Slouching unsteady towards my journey's end
With stoic endurance, I shall bear
My hefty baggage on these weak shoulders

I, now await the fading of the night
For yet another new dawn to break
To begin life all over anew
To be united evermore with my dainty Love

Till then… till we are one
Adieu! Adieu my little Love! !
