Though Apart, Will Always Be Together

Another goodbye poem, but this time around from the person staying behind. Do enjoy it.

like a helpless chick

why do you have to leave now?
denial has been my pill
and collapse seem inevitable
if I stop.

How can I hold time responsible for this?
Is there a way to put it behind bars?

I stand as a helpless kitten
watching its mother taken for sale
I weep as a Nation
whose King is going captive
to foreign lands.
And like a young chick
fatally exposed to flying Eagles.

Climbing Up the ladder to greatness

My mind says its for good
but my heart refuses to comprehend.
As true as you are climbing
up the ladder,
my feelings had wished;
that ladder should be my presence.

How can I recover from the smiles
you manufacture in me
from no raw materials?

Who can replace the immense kindness
you shower
as a default to your being?

I have no taste nor appetite

You've now created my days
of sad songs
sang without sounds nor instruments.
My days are now getting longer
and my nights darker than darkness.

Memories of you are life itself
and no matter how I try
your absence entails
the removal of my Life's support.

Leaving me,
has caused the most delicious of meals
and the finest materials
of silk, cotton and polyesthers
all to turn my taste and appetite sour.

When will I ever see you friend?
Am I really going to meet you there?
Or is this the end of our world?
You leave me with many questions
and a great deal of uncertainty.

swear to me! Take an Oath

Swear to me my dear
make me this promise
and please be faithful to your Oath.

That though apart,
we will always be together.
That my pain now, is worth it
and at the end we will come back
and be re-united
in a much more intense
and unshakable bond.

I greatly weep
as I say goodbye
cos it is difficult doing it,
while looking into your eyes.
