My Childhood Poem 19

Rating: 4.5

Says the girl: Come O dearest
Where are you
I can't wait any more
Waiting on this shore
Tears dwell like drops of dew.
You are the only one
Whom I can believe
Please do not decieve
Come before goes away the sun
Here I am waiting
Since months and years
Don't you see my tears?
Can't you hear my heart beat?
People laugh at me
They say you're drowned in sea
But I still wait on the shore.
My sorrows are growing
My faith is losing
My hands trembling
My heart praying.
How can you leave me here?
I can't live anymore-
If you can't come from the core
I will come to you my dear....'

This was girl on the shore
Waiting for her dearest
She was the pearl
That no one could gain
The sea took him in vain
For it could not (separate them.
They met again at the core
And never came back ashore
Becoming two shells with one gem
And lived together as best of the rest.

The story of this eternal wait by the girl for her lover is told in simple language! At the end the girl is rewarded by a strange union of a celestial kind! Enjoyed the poem!
