Let Me Weep

Let me weep.jpg

 

Let me weep

Let me weep that I may be satisfied

That I may flush out this pain deep within

Deep within my heart

This pain that causes me to…ohhhh!

This pain!

Birthed from betrayal, loss and grief

Let me weep!

Let me weep and rid myself of this filth

I don’t wish to choke

I just want to purge myself of this yoke

It’s heavy and it’s…it’s heavy!

It’s been five days now

And it’s been weighing me down

I feel twenty pounds heavier

Let me weep!

Let me get rid of this yoke!

It’s heavy!

Let the dam break

Let the tears pour

Oh, let them pour!

My heart weeps

My eyes leak

Let me weep until I can weep no more

Let me weep!

SLEPT

SLEPT

 

She tore the envelope open

And she read

Suddenly the clock stopped

Everything around her felt nonexistent

She couldn’t think

All she could see was his face

Her hands went numb

As the paper fell to the ground

Memories played

Like a movie being fast-forwarded

She saw pictures of his face move quickly in her head

Her lips moved

But they made no sound

She tried to say his name

But the pain in her throat wouldn’t let her

Suddenly the morning turned to evening

The joy turned to sorrow

The smile turned to tears

Her heart broke

No!!!!!!!!!

She screamed but no sound was heard

Her face felt hot

But her fingers were cold

HOW!!!!!!

She wept!

Finally, she found her voice

She croaked his name

But no one replied

He wasn’t there with her

But she knew that he would never call her, “Nne m”

Mama

Mother

Mum

Her son had gone to bed

To never wake up again

A SOLDIER’S FAREWELL

A SOLDIER’S FAREWELL_ICON.jpg

 

A soldier’s farewell

Heaven’s gain

Hearts broken

Words unspoken

A heavenly welcome

For a job well done

Great rejoicing in heaven

But the hearts of mortals are heavy

A hurricane of memories

The pain in our hearts…

…oh the pain!

Earth’s loss

Heaven’s gain

To serve in the flesh  no more

But to be with The Father forever

A soldier’s farewell

A great story to tell

Troubled hearts, “It is well”…do not sorrow

For we will see him in the morrow

Take heart

Wash away the pain

With thoughts of the gain

Weep not again

Cos’ a soldier never dies

A soldier always lives

Because He lives

PLEASE STAY

please-stay

I need to go

Please don’t say no

I’ll be back

But not right now

I’ll be away

But not for too long

Let me sing you one last song

A song that will make you smile

I really want to be with you

But I can’t take you with me

The storm would hit me so hard if I do

Please don’t cry!

I know…I know I should try

But not right now

He’ll pursue me

He’ll run after me

He might hurt me

I don’t want him to hurt you too

It will make me cry

So, please stay

You can’t go with me

I’ll come back for you…

…But not now

One thing is certain

I’ll come back for you

And then

We’ll be together again

SO LONG

SO LONG

 

I still hear you sing

Sweet memories it brings

Your kind eyes filled with love

Sweet tales you loved to tell

To speak and make me smile

Night time jokes

Oh! I used to laugh so hard

And watch you laugh as the tears travelled down your cheeks

How time flies!

I just wrote you a poem…last year…

…Last year…Come on!

I used to wish you were here

I used to pray to have you back

Many wishes to hear you speak

My eyes…they leak

My throat hurts a bit

These are all feelings

They don’t last forever

 
 

But the memories will never depart

Forever they will remain in my heart

Little precious stones memories are

Now we are apart

You journeyed home to meet The King

Your favorite songs I still sing

I no longer wish you were here

I’m happy you are there

I don’t see you now

It hurts so bad…I know!

But soon I’ll see you again

Say hello to all our loved ones in heaven

Greet The King and stay happy

It’s been eleven years

Oh…these tears!

So long Mama

Till we meet again

So long!

THE TEARS WON’T STOP

THE TEARS WON’T STOP.jpg

I try to fight back the tears

They keep coming

They keep pouring

I throw my head back

What a joke!

They don’t stop

They keep flowing

They need to stop!

Come on…please!

I need to stop crying

I try to feign a smile

But that doesn’t help

The dam burst

The tears poured

Now I can’t stop them

This can’t continue!

Someone help me!

Anybody!

I should have control!

I must stop this!

The tears keep flowing

Why?!

I try to forget your name

The memories we shared

The thought of you being gone

The pain

The memories of seeing you take your last breath

You struggling for life

You on the hospital bed

The pain!

Oh!

I try!

I’m trying!

Lord help me!

The tears keep coming

The pain of loss

The death of a loved one

The pain that tears my heart apart

The pain I feel

You are gone!

Breath gone!

You gone!

The tears won’t stop

NO MORE!

Image

We weep

We cry

We wail

We scream

It hurts

The pain

We scream

In vain

He has gone

She has gone

Far far away

The land so far

The land of Immortals

Dead and gone

Gone too soon

Gone too far

The pain

Oh the pain!

The vacuum

The loss

He was good

She was good

The man

The woman

Kind

Meek

The vacuum

Oh the vacuum!

The tears

They pour

My pool of tears

I’m weak

My throat hurts

The tears

They blind me

My leaking eyes

I drip

And I drip

No more to see

No more to hear

The voice is gone

Oh why!

Far far away

I’m blank

Not knowing what to do

Oh death!

Why art thou so greedy!

Why take the young?

Why take the precious?

I cry!

I wail!

I’m in pain

I need a hug

No…not a hug

We need him back!

We need her back!

Come back!

Come back and be mortal again

Fill this space

My heart cries

My voice is lost

And my eyes leak again

Forming a new pool

A fresh pool of tears

Why!

The whys are now too many

That’s all I hear

And then it hits me

The whys won’t bring you back

Because you are no more!

 

REST IN PEACE
