"Your absence is still new"
This line says everything.

Meena, this is such a sad piece that is so full of emotion and it's still so raw as it seeps through this piece and captured my heart and it had wonderful imagery scattered throughout.
1/ This is a sad opening and one that pulled me in. I feel this is about a lost love not someone who has passed because you hear the laughter of others maybe them yet your hearts aching (I may be wrong though.)
2/ The last line here shows it all because the absence of this person is still new to you which to me seems they either left not long ago or they left long ago but your heart still aches for their presence on your life.
3/ This is my favourite part. The imagery just wow.
4/Now, this makes me believe it is about someone who has passed as they aren't near and the repetition I feel makes the reader feel the longing for this person well it did me anyway.
Another year born
joyous laughter I hear
yet my heart is blue,
I feel this is either new years or a birthday! as its a celebration with a loved one.. im sorry its always painful to be sad at a time which should be joyful..
I look past
the crystal dew
and one thing is clear...
your absence is still new,
this is just wow... im reading it as crystal dew as tears.. the pain in the last line hit me hard.. well done..
An untouched morn
has no clue
of the birth of tears
which silently brews,
silent tears... we all know these very well.. i have written a piece years ago about them..
Another pain adorns
which blurs my view,
you are not near...not near
makes my heart blue
i love the repetition here.. you are wanting this loved one back, close where you can reach out and touch them..
