I Have No Memory Of You

Rating: 5.0


You puffed off like the wind
Abandoned me
Without anyone to lean unto
Except the four elements
I was swayed by them
Wandered from one place to another
Hurt and damaged.

Fate turned on me
Someone came along
With a heart of an angel
She nurtured me
Gave me roots to stand on
And wings to fly.

Suddenly you came
Like a bombshell
You forced your way
Into my world
Reminded me
That you were the one
Who gave my life.

I have a tall wall put up
In my corner
Where only a few
Are allowed to go through
I have no memory of you
It is hard
To make you near me
And be in my corner.

A sad poem it appears of a child left in on its own to be nurtured by anoother sou and when the mother came back, the child rejected her for he has no memory of a mother. Very touching and well written poem.
