This Poem is for a very special person, who I miss every second of everyday..My Granny

 

As I look to the starry sky,

On this night so bright,

Even though a tear I cry,

I know your magical sprite,

 

On this night so bright,

A walk down memories all alone,

I know your magical sprite,

Scared I am not, just grown,

 

A walk down memories all alone,

Still I feel you with me,

Scared I am not, just grown,

A woman just like you Iā€™d be,

 

Still I feel you with me,

Taking my arm, egging me on,

A woman just like you Iā€™d be,

Through everything tried to be strong,

 

Taking my arm, egging me on,

Memories of us in time,

Through everything tried to be strong,

Bruises and scars are lessons mine,

 

Memories of us in time,

Something I hold dear,

Bruises and scares are lessons mine,

Oh how I wish I had you near,

 

Something I hold dear,

Even though a tear I cry,

Oh how I wish I had you near,

As I look to the starry sky.

  7. It’s an interesting take on a prompt. And yes, it was almost as strong as the “non-fiction” prose that you had penned for a competition. Well done, Jaibala. Though it leaves me wondering – Who would I miss the most?

  10. A real trip down the memory lane………..Nice poem. ATB for BAT. Here is my post…PAVIL – MITHYA

    1. Thank You šŸ™‚ Wish you luck too

  11. When the topic was decided, I knew that your post was decided too šŸ™‚ For a trip down memory lane would definitely lead you there. And I know she’s proud of you for this post, for being strong. But I’m also sure she’d disagree that you ever are “alone”, even while walking down memory lane. How can you be when her memories keep you company?

    1. Well this post had to be about her. and I agree about her being with me always šŸ™‚
