Angel in the Sky

by Jad   Oct 28, 2014

Memories flood my mind like a river,
breaking mental dams. Cascading, slowly
down my face as I relive our life.

Setting the chaos inside my heart to rest,
your smile always brightened my day.
Once so strong and now a broken mess,
my love, like our memories, hides itself away.
Yet, I hurt to remember what once could be
because you were always the better part of me.

Your gentle kiss on my forehead. -taking my hand,
holding me close, loving me at my worst-
Changing me from a broken man,
you gave me life like a poet to a verse,
but years have taken their toll,
and I lie here afraid and cold.

But this pain and longing will subside
because soon I'll join my Angel in the sky.

    Jad left me speechless this week!

    He crafted a very unique mixture of rhyme and just pure elegance. Love the mixture in the stanzas with this piece! The sadness of losing a love... sighs... When writing a sad poem it is important to display the message, but then you go back and craft it- With elegance and vibrancy of a unique rhyme scheme... that takes heart, talent and just wow!!

    This floods me with memories and the images are just moving.

    you gave me life like a poet to a verse,

    ^^This particular line stood out for me. It says/shows how much this person has created you or made you to who you are now. A good poet pens a beautiful and meaningful so a good person creates another good person. I can't explain it but that line is very moving.
