Poem For A Sad And Longing Heart - When The Heart Is Sad

Source



When the heart is sad,

Who is it around me, I wonder,


When the lips speak silently,

And the breath comes in fast,

When the eyes keep calling,

And the heart lets out a sigh,


When the heart is sad,

Who is it around me, I wonder,


Images float before the eyes,

Of your face, Of your thoughts,

When the mirror begs me, with,

One innocent thought,


When the heart is sad,

Who is it around me, I wonder,


No promises are made,

Yet, why do I wait for you?

Without reason when I feel happy,

The heart still longs for you.


When the heart is sad,

Who is it around me, I wonder?


Have you ever missed someone you loved?

This is so lovely. My heart is sad whenever I think of my beautiful son who was taken from me. Cancer claimed him just a few yrs ago. It feels like it was yesterday. I voted UP on your heart-felt poem.

This is the first time I have felt moved to comment on a poem on Hubpages. This poem is eloquent, and has very good rhythm and strong images. My heart usually sinks when I click on a link to a hub only to discover it’s a ‘poem’, but this really is poetry! If this is your first attempt as you say above, I say keep going!

Thank you very much.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem. Loneliness is part of the grieving. We sometimes feel that we have come across a brick wall. It may feel disheartening to have lost a beautiful soul. I have lost one soul and its unbearable at times. But, its beautiful that you shared this emotion. Its important that we embrace our emotions and write about it. I feel the same way sometimes. All alone. Although we have so many people. That one person not being here is difficult. It feels like you are alone. I think we feel that with our parents as well. Your poetry was very touching. You inspire me to write my own poetry as well. Its great to write when you are in the moment. Its like a perfect photo. We capture our thoughts during that moment; without interference; through our poetry and writings. Your a great writer. Thank you. Voted up and SHARED.

Rajan, You obviously feel your poetry. What a lovely, emotive poem. It truly touched my heart. Of course, I like most humans have longed for someone they have loved and lost, and you captured that exquisitely. I look forward to reading more of your hubs and hopefully, more of your poems. I voted up and will be following.

Ruchira, sadness is born of happiness. We are happy to find the ones we love close to us but when they are not around sadness engulfs us depending on how close our relationship is to that person.

I appreciate your votes and read. Thanks.
