Relationships, My Joys Are The Sorrows of Your Yesterdays. A Dedication to Besarien.

Namaste! With Welcome and much Love


Relationships, you are the breath of each new dawn,

Followed by the kiss of a peaceful sunset.

You invoke meaning in the emotions;

Calm the mind with each passing day.

Yet my joys are the sorrows of our yesterdays;

My tears the solace of our tomorrows.

Relationships, you speak to me of the beauty inside my Heart,

A rapport with an unseen, yet comforting Friend.

Thus I enter into His dance,

Cascading roses to the hope of new beginnings,

Filling me with the beauty of each morning’s sunrise.

Void is the full glass,

In a relationship encumbered by shadows.

Yet a glass can be sublimely empty,

In a reservoir in which relationships, deposit Love,

Empty ... of the stress acquired from work;

Bare ...of the toil of family struggles.

Sweet relationships, I am filled with the opulence of the moon,

The sun, mountains and nature’s rainbows,

Sitting with the promise of new horizons inside my Heart.

How I wish to blend,

Into the perpetual merging, of this, your timeless moment,

Immersed in the seed of your radiant bloom;

Yet waltzing in the fragrance of your blossoms.

Fantastic poem. The years when I was a marriage counselor taught me a lot about relationships, and your poem should have been on my wall!

Thanks my sweet, Deergha. Even I do need to change sometimes. It is now:

"...Yet my joys are the sorrows of our yesterdays;

My tears the solace of our tomorrows...."

As always, you make sense of that which means naught to few, and your glow continues on, into the darkness.
