If I Forget You - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

If I forget you, Love,
no dove
will sing in the forests;
all the sparrows, leaving their nests,
will fly in the blue sky
and die
no spring
will come more on this earth;
animals will stop giving birth
to calves; civilization will come to an end;
and God will send
all happiness to hell for good;
it should
be so because, o Love, if I
forget you, every thing will be meaningless, wrong and lie.

    Wow. You hve written it so well, that I can picture it vividly. And on top of that it isn't sentimental, I can imagine that you are just stating the obvious :) Great poem (Report) Reply

    Sayeed, very deep way of loving, that everything seems meaningless because it is only this love which matters and gives meaning. Very romantic and passionate indeed. (Report) Reply

    I liked everything in the poem except that I feel that you could have used another word in place of cows which to me isn't very romantic. However, it is just my opinion and it may not be the best. Anyway, I like the flow and style of this poem. Lovely! (Report) Reply
