The Signs


We saw the signs!

You painted the sky dark
And made the heavens shed its stars

You set the wind in motion
And it ferried our hopes on its wings

We brought our vessels out to be filled
As the heavens rumbled your coming

You halt life’s cycle,
And cease mother’s blood-spattered pains!

And when our hopes has learnt to soar,
Feathered by your plausible strokes,
We woke up one morning to find you gone!

A bolt of cramp announced your departure
As you left us with a bleeding heart!

So sad but true
He gives and takes
Though we are sometimes not ready to let go
