Lost


Everyone can write poems,
But few can write poetry,
That is what she said to me
when she stepped out of the grave,
spotless and demanding. A
question mark written all over
her face, Commitment, ,
Is that inside you she asked,
Never expecting an answer,
Who is this being,
My mother,
My wife,
Mother nature,
I have no idea.....

She came back last night,
smiling, in an unconvincing
kind of way,
She threw out a net
and trawled through my brain,
All she found were
Chards of stone,
was that all there was,
Or should I have said,
I Love You.......

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,
