Alone... Poem by YURI DURAAN


Rating: 3.0

I woke up one night because
I heard you call...
I answered the night
but the night was still

I walked by the river and
heard you whisper to me...
I cried to the water
but the echo was empty

I stood by your grave and
felt your breath on my face...
I wept on the stone
but you were still gone

I remembered a time when
we had laughed together...
and this memory is what I'll
hold onto in my heart forever


Deeply touching. A pensive piece that lingers on the mind. t x

Memories of laughter, of love of moments cherished are worth remembering as moments in time. Bob
