Are You Coming Home? It's Her Story

 

 

Been years since our parting

I knew you would leave

I only had to acquiesce

 

 

My love wasn’t enough

To embrace your dream

To fill your world

 

 

Wondering you found happiness

Worrying how you’d been

Couldn’t make peace with

 

 

Sigh,

Illness came to me

Became frail and feeble

Your line was down

You were found nowhere

 

 

Are you coming home baby?

May not greet you with

Sweet smile that you loved

 

 

But don’t worry, my dear

You can find the place

Where I am lying down

Near the small Sunday church

Where we used to go

 

 

Please don’t get upset

Please don’t get sad

Am happy with memories

That we were together

 

 

Please bring me daisies

Leave next to headstone

Then I shall know

That you come home

You come to me

 

 

When crisp breeze touches you

You know I am around

Am giving the last kiss

Saying Goodbye to my love

 

 

Will you lean over

Whisper You Love Me

I shall feel warm

And sleep in peace

Beneath the frozen ground

Great piece. Always making me ride with your emotion, this time to profound loneliness. After reading this piece, I am wandering sometime and somewhere in my past when I had same loneliness and missed someone so much.

For some reason, this poem's just taken me to my favorite number home sweet home by Motley Crew. (that was not a romantic love song though) Jator's works always bring me back to good memories ... old fading one.

Thanks for the comments. "Oldies but Goodies" songs remind us of happy or memorable recollection that we miss so much.
