Essence of loss

cof

It is knowing presently there is a gaping whole within you.
It is knowing you can no longer make new memories together.
It is knowing you can no longer hear their voice.
        Speak to them and have a conversation
It is knowing you can no longer feel their touch.
Knowing you have to keep on living the life you both dreamt off.
It is knowing for that moment you’ll have to face the world alone.
It is knowing you can no longer grow old together.
Milestones you’d like to share to them and yet can’t.
However, it is also…
Reliving moments and knowing you had them .
It is being thankful you shared the most precious commodity of all:
         Time.
It is sharing stories to others, the memories, laughter, lessons
         And dumb moves.
It is knowing they cared and loved you.
         Which is why for that moment you felt loss and keenly so.
Loss is natural, it may not be great but everyone has had and encounter with it.
It is neither good nor bad.
It just is.
Never easy…
But through loss we are reminded of what we have and can gain.
         Possibilities of what we can give.
         And leave when it is our time to be someone’s loss.

So with everyday you’ve got, make it count…

I’ve got sunshine on a CLOUDY day…

 

I wrote this poem when I was on my way to work one day. It was a beautiful spring day, school’s out and it was quiet. Just perfect! While I was looking out the window and looked at the sky, I was suddenly reminded these lyrics, “I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day…” only that line, over and over again. Then I realised that most songs or any written text, when they mention the weather or something of the likes they talk about  about sunshine, sun, the stars all things twinkling up above but only a few times about the clouds that are always so ever present. Well then, I present you; a poem about the clouds above. Enjoy!
