Preface

Memories would always be there. Sometimes parting is inevitable and we remember our beloved in subtle ways triggering soft sentiments inside us. This poem is a depiction of same.

Tears of remembrance

My tears are the,

Reminiscent of your love.

Which I have preserved,

Like the golden treasures.


You left me for good,

In search of better world.

Where you aspired for,

More worldly pleasures.


I knew your ambition,

I knew your desires.

I had to say good by,

To all your attires.


I am now a lonely bird,

No plan, no aspiration.

Only tears can fall down,

In your admiration.

Endnote

Memories sometimes evoke pain and sadness. We cannot forget the past where we had everything but destiny had something else reserved for us. Now those remembrances sometimes produce tears in our eyes and we feel and realise that we had lost something precious in our lives.

Demas, thanks a lot.

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on May 11, 2020:

Often we can choose what to remember the most, and let the sadness slide aside to make room for the pleasant memories. It's not always a free choice of what came freely, but we can still choose to replace the sad with the glad.

DreamerMeg, thanks for your visit and also for your detailed reflections.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt (author) from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on May 09, 2020:

Linda, thanks for visiting.

DreamerMeg from Northern Ireland on May 09, 2020:

Yes, memories can be very sad. My neighbour lost his wife this week, she died of cancer, so she didn't leave for worldly pleasures and he will now be very lonely, even though he has children and grandchildren. Memories can also help. He will have good memories of her.

When someone leaves you for worldly pleasures, that can be very heartbreaking. I knew a man whose wife left him because she wanted to go out gallivanting. He certainly had "no plan, no aspiration" as you said. He has now found someone new but the children are torn between the two parents.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on May 08, 2020:

This is a sad but lovely poem. Separation from a loved one is always hard.
