Farewell

With lasting memories, tears and woes
Wrapped like a dream and sealed with a rose,
And with a dolorous heart away from scent
How shall I ever forget to lament?
How shall I forget with poignant eyes
Those beguiling days, yea days that cries?
Or like a pitiless stone not weave my rhyme,
My desolate art that dread not time!
And forget the tales— those tales of past,
Crushing sorrows that come yea first;
Or those glimpses of love, my joys, my pains,
And memories of years that make insane!
Those tales of abhorrence and young romance
With elegant accounts of hearts that dance.
How shall I forget those affable whiles,
The love of those souls like undying miles?
Or those noble preceptors who just like light,
With every twilight taught me to fight;
Those whiles of triumph and days of trying
And bitter failures and moments of crying!

Oh, there are memories we all forget
In the journey of life, life’s ebbing sunset,
But still some memories adhere and stay
Like silken blossoms in life’s highway.
And with all those memories like azure sky
Let us now part with agonized hearts,
And with zillion kisses let’s bid goodbye
And sail like gallants for a pristine start.
O adieu! adieu! friends and foes,
My sterling prayer with ye all goes.
O adieu! adieu! youngs and olds,
My love for ye is eternal gold!
Oh, parting is such sorrow where part
Two enduring souls that once were near,
And with a final wave two broken hearts
Slumber for aye under silent tears.
So remember for aye my farewell words,
Preserve oh them with love and woe,
For wrecking all bonds like a warbling bird
With thousand memories I shall go.

      I know it isn’t. But perhaps it will be best if I remain a bit away from blogging at least this year. I’m trying my level best but it seems I’m getting addicted to it day by day.

    I hope you will not be annoyed, but technically it is a perfect creation, erudite and grand, but lacking a human heart. What I like in poetry is the sense of warmth, spontaneity, and being uplifted. The coldness and lack of understanding of why people so much in love would part, make me feel uncomfortable.

      Nay, I won’t be annoyed, at least never for this poem even if the whole world get against me. First of all I want to clear that this one is not a love poem in any way. This poem was originally written on 11th February, 2020 the night before my high school farewell ceremony and I believe this one is one of my finest creation for there’s a series of emotions associated with it. Most of my old friends and teachers have now parted and the place where I’ve spent 7 precious years of my life has now become a memory.

      Thank you so much for your feedback. Sorry for the late reply. Days for me aren’t not going as good as before.

      In that case, you have my apology, but perhaps you should have included a one-sentence of explanation.
      The horrific situation in India is greatly worrying to all of us, and, like you, I am also in a somber mood.
      Please, stay safe. You have a great talent.

  12. Dear Shayan,
    This lovely poem and especially your words “some memories adhere and stay, like silken blossoms in life’s highway” touched a lost chord in my heart. I remember His smile and His touch when I visit the grave “sight” in my soul where cut flowers lay …. and a cross. There’s a “high way” in my thoughts next to it that goes to the One Whose love is everlasting and my true Beloved wipes away my tears with His kisses when I take the high road and not the low one.

    I believe that the most anointed and heart rendering songs come out of broken hearts and it’s my hope that you will be stirred and blessed by this one. The last note in it is a “whew” letting me know our last note will be, too!

    1. Right after I sent my comment, I had a vision of a big tear that came out of my eye going into someone’s mouth. After that, it flowed down and watered the garden within… even the enclosed garden of who we are.
      It tells me that no sorrow is in vain… that our sorrows are a source of life because living words come out of the “seeing” we gain from them and minister to others if they receive the truth we’ve learned. Just felt I had to share what came first out of your tear and then mine.
      I call it “Blessed seeing.”
      ❤️✝️
