...................Behind The Sun..................
[I miss you granny... this one's for you]
The blazing sun upon the sky sent freezing rays
Within my heart already coated with sore grays;
The winter wind blew cold - such mournful symphony,
And even Heaven's angels mourned your memory...
Once beautiful sapphire sky now painted black,
Clothes impregnated with rot instead of lilac,
Tears too insignificant to reveal the pain
That bloomed alike thorned roses in my heart again...
As I looked up, I saw your spirit float away -
"Oh God, please, why can't she stay just another day?"
But Your answer was mute, blocked by my sordid grief
Causing my weakened mind to drown in disbelief...
Snowflakes falling gently upon my jaded face,
Awaiting lonely for the warmth of your embrace,
Knowing that some day I'll meet you behind the sun
Because that's where God has hidden Heaven's garden...
This piece touched me in many ways. I lost my grandmother in September and she was like a mother to me and my sister. Reading this sadden my heart but also made me smile knowing that her memory is still very vivid to me. Thank you.
I loved this whole piece, your use of description and the sadness you evoked. I am glad you entered it, you definetely desrved to win. I especially like the way you ended it, again it evoked a great image in my head. Great Job!
