Once More

How happy we were, together,
When you were snatched away from me;
Going through the maze of life, together,
But you were snatched away from me!

Every little work I did, was really done for you
And happiest was I to see you smile;
The twinkle in your eyes, or the deep thoughtful look
Clearly showed you had me in your mind.

I still remember the day, that glorious day,
When you first held my hand
And gave me a bright, yellow sunflower:
Your first gift to me.

Those innocent days of childhood,
Times so pure and full of love
Soon turned to days of duty and cares;
We were happy, though, only to have each other.

And yet, you were snatched away from me!

The love we shared, the enriching of one another;
Has it all turned to nothing?
When I look around me, you cannot be seen!
Your promise, to be by my side, broken?

I knew God when I loved you
And we worshipped Him together;
The same God has snatched you from me!
Now I ask God: why, and for how long?

In my own way, I hear the answer;
Somewhere deep within me, I know:
When the facade of time breaks away,
When my duties here are done
And I, weary, am released at last;
We will be together, I know for sure;

You, by my side, once more;
Not to be snatched away again.

Ayesha, a very good poem. I'm a lover of poetry, for in a poem, you can express in two lines what would take 500 words in an article. Very poignant, touching, and brings tears to the eyes, which is a sure sign that the post has crossed the mind and reached the heart and soul.

good post. this is what life is all about, everyone wondering why someone dear was snatched away to a realization that dawns after a lot of grief and a bright hope of reconciliation.
