You were like an angel when we did meet,
You swept me away off my feet.
You held me close and hugged me tight,
And planted on my cheek a kiss so light!
You came to my ear and whispered to me,
Never in this life will I ever leave thee.
Our love, you said, was so gentle and pure,
Forever and always all darkness it shall endure.
'You are my princess', you always said,
I smiled with pride, your eyes I read
The eyes that sparkled like the stars above,
The eyes that spoke of nothing but Love.
Our love swelled like a raging sea,
Until you said, 'I'll be back,wait for me'.
The wait lasted for nights and day,
Before I realized you had gone away.
Years have passed, such lonely years,
I still think of you, still feel u near.
These were yesterdays that I still adore,
These are memories with You no more.
While your tag says heartbreak, I can't help but imagine this from the point of view of a martyr's daughter, Apple. It's very moving.ReplyDelete
Maybe it was the brilliance of the writing or maybe it was because I was looking for an alternate perspective, even now I read this as a lament from a bereaved daughter. Cleverly worded. :DReplyDelete
