She has gone, leaving me behind
As I was never there before;
The feelings of mine,
As in so many words were never spoken;
I wander in the abyss of my mind
In search of the road that defines
Why a heart is broken?
In that loneliness, draws attention
An unknown creeper…
The swinging hands to seek support
Push through air a bit deeper.
While I put its hands around the rail,
“Dear”, softly I say, “I am here.”
In a depressing afternoon from my balcony
Clapping their wings when the pigeon couple flies away,
See two lives in the shells hang at the edge of a window ledge
Are about to cause dismay.
While I push them back in the nest with care
I murmur, “I am here.”
Suddenly the darkness descends on earth
Thundering storm brings in rain
Hearing a stray puppy’s cry
I walk out on the passing lane.
As it shivers without a shelter in absolute despair
I pick up the whelp in my arm to say, I care.
The pain within me seems to have spread its wings
All over the world, in every being.
I walk across to all to wipe the tears
And pull them in close to my heart to say,
