Festival of lights – the poem

Updated on November 12, 2012

Everywhere lights and smiles

Scattered to miles and miles….

Then there are few hearts

Crying to death….

As there is one missing…

Most dearest…

Most nearest…

Without whom life has no worth

So far and so forth…

Still destiny is cruel enough…..

To make the one living….

Without a life….

Without a heart…

So far and so forth…..

Colours seems transparent

Lights seem darkness….

Day seems night….

Smiles become noises….

Words are just dissonance….

People around are puppets ……

Warmth is deadly freezing…

There is nothing called comfort….

There is no meaning of unwinding…..

Fun and joy……???

These are aliens unworthy….

Then the crackers around….

The smoke fills the heart

Breathings become effort…

The noises ignite the burn…

To get burn in own fire….

In the heart….

Whatever is left of that element…!!!!

Then the sky is lit up with many lights…..

It is painted with many colours…

Then I see those diamond eyes….

That glittering smile among all the

Golden glow of stars….

The smile and the eyes…

Still I long for to show me the way….

Which silver sky you are in dear?

How I find you near?

Will you wait for me?

Tonight and every night….

Till I join you up there?

Do you still feel I care?

Do you still know ?

I dare…..

To say….I love you ,

My dear….!

You are my life…

You are my heart…

You are my light….

You are everything…..

Then I find a way….

To look up to my sky….

I have a reason to look up…

I have a reason to light up….

My own sky….

As YOU are up there….

So I carry on till I am with you.

There is a life if left behind…

Then I dedicate it to you…

As I can love you more…

I can miss you more….

There is my own diamond

Up in the sky….among the stars!

      Everything you said and felt in that beautiful poem I felt and say all the time to my beloved Craig. Only I know he is not up there, but right here beside me - still the same - and waiting to be together in the end. Thank you Crisp - it is this time of year that can be so sad for those of us without our soulmate! Hugs

      The poem has such a melancholy, yet soothing and encouraging feel to it. Encouraging at the end to read "as I carry on till I am with you..." Beautiful.

      Thank you dear shiningirisheyes, for your continual support. I personally has not lost anyone excluding my own father that too seems ages. However he is still present very much in my memory. This poem is dedicated to one friend who lost his wife recently who was also a friend. I think in this world everyday many people whom i do not know lost their dearest one unknown to me. But my heart feels for them and thus this poem. Thanks for your comment and precious votes.

      God bless you

      Hi dghbrh

      "Still I long for to show me the way….

      Which silver sky you are in dear?"

      Beautiful and poignant. It touched my heart and brought tears to eyes.

      Take care :)

      Sooooo deep...sooo dark, Deergha - and then...there is light! i hope i never know these torturous feelings - to lose someone so dear as to affect every moment...It makes me see a different side of having an extremely small family, and yet...it is bound to happen..THAT is what they call life, and -all we can do - is our very best!

      So poignant dear..

      It affected me deeply, that says much about your talent...

      I was so touched by your poem and so grateful that Rema shared this. It speaks volumes of my heart's yearning for my deceased husband. The song is absolutely beautiful...sorrowful...exhilarating all at once. I will have to buy this. Rated UP/ A/B Thank you.
