Maria Magdalena Biela


Apart


Her eyes were shivering a tear
while the old year was shot
she softly sighed 'Happy New Year! '
And dried the tearful thought.

Her eyes were echoing the heart
its beating ten to one
the counted seconds, whole in part,
made future be outrun.

Her eyes kissed Mother's loving hands
and Father's forehead gray
they cry in their faraway lands
and for their daughter pray.

Their eyes were searching, near and far,
to meet each other's soul
watching the same heavenly Star
and each part as a whole.

When Time she stopped, she whispered sad
into wide Heaven's ear:
'I love you, Mom! I love you, Dad!
Blessed be this New Year'!

    I too live in other country than my own, away from my loved ones, so, perhaps that is why this poem touched a deeper chord inside me. I felt the same way in the night of New Year's Eve but I did not have the grace to put it in words so lovely. (Report) Reply

    To live in a foreign country, away from those you love, from your roots, it is not an easy task, I gather. This poem speaks in behalf of all people that live apart from their lands. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
