I offered my tears…

it was heavy

the burden,

the load i carried



my knees were shaking

as if to break

into pieces



and i felt her from the sun

and touched her final warmth

embracing her all over



sadness wasn’t overran

after i shed some precious tears

it happened as i feared my own fears



i heard my cries and sobs

as i ran my hands over my eyes

she bade her last goodbye of goodbyes



“I offered my tears to You

I collected them with my palms

I beg You to bring back my wife’s life…”

We are meant to be

recounting moments when i was down in dumps
clouds in laze straining the sun
sounds and motions were ultimately restrained
these were the days i bumped the humps

almost shed some precious tears
my heart had roughly stopped beating
facing the time of one of my fears
rule of yours had me emptied hoping

dusts of spats repeatedly emerged
small things became war of words
not you nor i have claimed the fault
your tongue was always the sharpest sword

years were routinely in that troubled ways
unceasingly waited to hear the magic of sorry
won’t let the hurt to crush and outweigh
my love for you was so special to me

through the times you became my strength
i was slumping down when you lifted me so high
believing in myself that this love would be my last
to triumph over discomforts in my battle cry

our life’s shadowed moments have their ends
to cheer our hearts again everyone would envy
streams of these troubled waters have their bends
our love we have kept, ’cause we are meant to be…
