A Letter from the Sky

If somehow all your plaintive pleas
don’t reach my ears tomorrow,
if all sweet dreams you dreamt of me
take shape of grief and sorrow.

If somehow all get crush on you
and they get on their knees,
and you find all pleasures, false or true
but get no more of me.

I wish so much you would not cry
with your nerves so pale and gray,
nor to life you would say goodbye
and slay yourself that way.

For I wish so much to see you live
to see you smile all day,
to discern the love I could not give
before I went away.

So fear no more these worldly sorrows
nor awful twisted words,
rather hear me calling every morrow
with the blended notes of birds.

Feel my touch so calm and soothing
in the warmth of summery sun,
catch my fragrance, strong and pleasing
when the frantic day is done.

And remember one day far from crowd
where the blue sky meets the land,
I’ll be waiting for you, all unbowed
to greet and kiss your hands.

  4. Beautiful poem. Exquisite imagery. The Sky, The Earth, Man all, as if , are meeting on a stage to converse. The consoling and reassuring tone of the Sky is touching. The diction is simple and words are aptly picked. The ‘abab’ rhyme scheme is suitable though strays a wee bit here and there. Keep penning Shayan.

    Love poems always have the power of conviction because they are written from the heart, and your poem has that effect. Beautiful.

    Thank you.

    Shayan, it is hard to believe you are only 17 years old. You are an extraordinary poet. This is one of the most beautiful love poems I’ve read. What I love in a poem is that it is not so esoteric that ordinary people can’t understand it. That is hard for me to accomplish when I’m trying to force my fluid thoughts into a mold. But you have done it beautifully. Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to becoming friends.

            Since you are still a youngster, part of the way you guide is by writing and being a success. Then others will follow. Do what you do to the best of your ability, and you will be leading by example. Not everyone wants or is able to write, Saji. We can all write if we take the time and effort, but you do have talent, too. What are your plans for the future?
