Tears Of An Emigrant's Wife..... - Poem by Jaishree Nair

Kissing away my tears of desolation;
to the land of gold you migrated
to secure our dreams limited......

Foamy flakes of vows of love....
bubbles forth over the shadows of life..
to remove the pall of despondency until you return...
with the exotic fragrance of spring-
that blossoms my whole being....

Counting the days for the next reunion-
to once again hold your hand
in the golden aura of twilight...
and enjoy the wind breezing cool
beneath the teasing moon smiling and winking.....

To wallow once again in the warmth of your embrace- -
and fill my heart with the colours of your rainbow
and add more sparklers of moments to my coffer secret.
To stick like a shadow, never leaving your side....

To gently caress the mark of your childhood prank;
and tease you on your boyish insanities......
To forget the world in your embrace.....
and drown my grievances in your smile tender.

Swinging in the bygone days of togetherness-
With tears to melt my dreams on lonely nights!
Reviewing with sweet pain those intimate moments we shared-
that keep us going.......

till we meet again..........! ! ! !

    It's the first poem on the matter I read in PH.A reality we do not use to take into notice ad deep as you did by this excellent poem.In literature's history the first verses on the matter in Odyssee, words from Laertis, the father of Oddusseus, about the absence of his son. (Report) Reply
