Reflections - Poem by Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

thought about you yesterday
and tears ran down my face
as I unpacked memories
that can never be erased

though our broken hearts will not mend
every now and then
something makes me think of you
and of what might have been life with you

I remember our dreams and walks
the laughter and the warm feelings
they are the desires of ages

but when I look back on yesterday
I gather the tears and pick the heart aches
moments your smiles were away from me
times my heart was breaking inside
and our soul was burried in lamentation

I thought of all these
and I said a little prayer of hope
left somewhere in my palms
