family · love · Love 2020 · Searching for you

Your glistening tear

Your glistening tear

Running down your cheek

Your silent words

You would never speak

I would wonder why

What i had done

To start this reaction

How it begun

To say I’m sorry

To make it stop

To ask forgiveness

To turn back the clock

But now you sob

Your tears overflow

You point to the door

It’s time to go

Beautiful sun

It was not cold this morn

Dew was on the grass

The breeze almost still

As if waiting for nature to whisper

To make my hairs stand up

Watching the horizon

As I have a million times

Awaiting its glow

Until finally

It peeps its head

Mesmerising yellow

I longed for your warmth

My naked skin breathing you

Your incredible brilliance

Fill my every nook

I am yours

To take me again and again

I will always wait for you

Fidel to the end

Beautiful sun

Sometimes we need to cry

Sometimes we need to cry

To release the pain away

To empty all the stress and strain

Not to keep it all at bay

We are not weaker for letting go

We are stronger in ourselves

Embrace and stop fighting it

Think of your mental health

I’m eager to have you back

I realised life is difficult

Without you around

I can’t even concentrate

My mind is up and down

Pulling myself out of bed

Think to have a wash

My brain is not working yet

It is just a mush

I’m making silly errors

Its affecting my job

Just to get to the end of the day

That requires a lot

I need to have our routine

To keep my mind on track

I can’t wait to see you again

I’m eager to have you back

Sometimes we just need a hug

Sometimes we just need a hug

Therapeutic form of love

Better than a drug

A little, tiny, BIG BIG HUG

I leave the home to walk a bit

I leave the home to walk a bit

To digest the day and breathe

All the heavyness that I feel

I need to be upheaved

A moment with the nature

For an hour or two

Until it gets dark

Or I haven’t got a clue

I need to empty myself

To push it all out

Release the negativity

The nuclear fallout

Oh that feels so much better

My time all alone

Think it’s time to go back now

To my family, my home

The thing about solitude is

The thing about solitude is

You can’t have enough

Even when you bathe in it

You’ve not had your drug

You want to be alone

Throughout all the day

You won’t go outside

Come what may

You don’t want to see friends

No not at all

Take the dog for a walk

Not your ball

You would rather stay inside

Drink and watch tv

For in our little head

It’s, well, to be free

1. Rhyming poetry to change your day · depression · family · Life · love

I never got to say goodbye!

I miss you so much

It feels like yesterday

Years have passed by

All along the way

It happened so quickly

In not even a year

You were taken from me

My biggest fear

I dream of seeing you

Hugging you tight

Holding you in my arms

Smiling with delight

Talking to you just once

To say what I had to say

“Dad I miss you, I love you”

I always will, come what may

Many years have passed

Even now it makes me cry

Remembering like it was yesterday

I never got to say goodbye
