For you

This is to you

Whose sighs punctured the rhythm of the nights

Whose burden depressed the mattress

Whose tears drenched the pillowcases

May this console the loss you’ve found

May your faith find substance in your fate

May this be to you what I couldn’t say or do

  1. Sometimes, our most emotional moments can’t be captured/painted with words. This poem does that brilliantly. Thanks, oga Charles! 🙂

    1. Yes, there are sighs more expressive than words…feelings we rather bury during the day. At night, these issues come to the fore…Thanks for being here, ma’am!

Common, let's have your say!
