After You - Poem by Taher Shemaly

Let the sorrow nest upon this heart
Let the sad moments take this tired mind
How horrible it is to be in senseless doubt
That can come to me from the hind
After you

Great it was the love that was kept
Great is the loving moments that I felt
But how can I say within this crypt
How wonderful were the days that I spent
With you

Days come and days are to go
Centuries to come and others will follow
And leaves shall fall and fall again
And this body has nothing for a sustain
After you

In lines I had to put my tears at action
Inkless, paperless, but hopefully full of passion
A dream tickles my mind from time to time
Up to life I'll be back, and share the rhyme
With you
