Day 3 1/3/10

Amids which shadows do you now tread,
In silence or in tears?
I mourn the which you had left,-
Another day of age Nineteen,-
And left by isolated means,
Under the thunderous sun;
While no soul gathered by you gasping breath,
I now stand over your grave
Though you may not have done so for me.

If souls exist then let it be
That ours should entwine
In this, this isolated plot,
Under the wilken tree.
No tombstone lays your head at rest
And farther do your remains sink;
But every Sunday, until I join your grace,
I shall take a clod of dirt
From underneath, and guide it with the wind.

dead loved ones
If only we could say what we should have said before we lost them... It's a pain steaking thought every time. Humans always take for granted the immediate, the tangible and edible; always wanting what they cant have- desirous of lust and fleshly passion. Those things are never taken for granted- always fresh and new. But our dear loved ones always get the short end of the stick. Thought provoking this. Thank you.

This one is one of your best - I feel you weren't trying to force a poem. This is heartfelt, real, and authentic.
1st word 1st line -amid or amidst
Do more of this! This is your voice!
Bless you

Tell me that you love me now!!
Love this poignant and sad.

The sad tears of regret over one's grave, contrast to the tears of happiness a loved would exchange for having heard these words while alive!

I have a poem in the archives about this..."If you love me...tell me now!"
