Our Song

 

it’s 3 am and

they’re playing our song

our song that has been

the anthem of my soul

the melody that lulls me to sleep

and tuck me goodnight

yet, here i am

wide awake,

not a sleep wink

I toss and turn, ’till

the break of dawn

night passes by

watching, observing

passerines  continue

their migration flights

throughout the night

upon the darkest

moonless sky

as my desolate

and inquisitive

heart ponders

when will we ever

get to sing our song

together again

once more

  1. I hope hope hope you will get to sing your song together again SOON! 🙂
    I know you are deeply missing your beloved loved ones. I hope you can rest in their love for you and get a good nights sleep tonight! 🙂
    Songs are so sensory…and when we hear them we can remember times, people, feelings, etc. 🙂 I love that each person has songs that become the “soundtrack” of their life.
    (((HUGS))) ❤ 🙂
    PS…I'm sorry my doggie post made you sad. 😦 I left you a comment there to your comment. 🙂
    PSS…I miss family, too…we were supposed to have a family reunion in June and it had to be cancelled. 😦 Many of them live so far away we only get to see each other that one time each year. 😦

    1. Thank you Carolyn….this pandemic is not going anywhere soon and its really becoming tougher each day.. but as kate said…better that way to ensure everyone is safe.
      Distance maybe really heartbreaking but we will always be reminded of our love for each other and how we are loved in return and i believe this is the moment too when i can proudly say i love everyone in the best possible way i can.

      And oh, will go check your doggie reply…yeah my dobberman is a bit old now and i think age and loneliness as well is creeping through his being.

  2. I hope you get to be with your loved ones soon. I hope you are able to sleep. I seem to be waking up earlier these days. I have to tell myself to go to bed and forcefully shut my eyes. Its the effect of the pandemic. Beautiful poem. I guess a lot of us are going through it.Stay safe Mich.
