Gone Is The Cloud (poem)

Gone is the cloud which danced through the sky

The warm welcome ear

That long lasting smile


Gone is the water’s refreshing reply

Of things which could be

From now forgotten


Gone is the meaning wandering why

It happened at all

And don’t look around


Who knows the wind which make a dream fly

A blind eye to chance

A frolicking heart


And wonders once felt truth can’t deny

The lingering doubts

Safety of others


And not a single tear did they cry

It didn’t seem right

As they looked around


No further effort was made to try

There’s somebody else

But what was the name


Did it even say a last goodbye

One last memory

Till we meet again

You're taking me to a place I don't want to go again. It's hard to let go of the good things, but when we have no choice we have to move on.

A sad, but well written poem.I liked the Satriani vid;my favourite track by him.One of the top guitarists in the world;I think he taught Steve Vai how to play.A great talent.Thank you.

This poem brought to mind our fallen soldiers. I'm not sure whether or not that was your intent, but I find this comforting if that is the case.

Martin, for me this is about the plane and the souls it carries; the cloud which danced through the sky.....or a memory from the past....either way it is beautifully done, evocative with a touch of sadness and regret.

So beautifully written. You certainly have a way with words and of painting a picture with an economical sweep of the brush.

Beautiful and sad Martin; we don't know something will become a cherished memory until after it's already gone... nothing wrong with holding on.
