a furtive dream a fairy tale play
a Shakespeare story
of Romeo and Juliet
bourne from love and hate
so tragic it seems
leaves an eternal mark
for those who love and hate
tasted its saccharine sweetness
tasted its bittersweet remorse
for those who love and gain their
fairy tales or suffer eternal pain from love
love lighted a spark ignited once eyes meet in a single glance
love a consuming ember that fires that burning desires in our soul
it grows and glows with time once tended and nourished with careful hands
love like a seed that grows in fertile ground soft tendrils sprouted
breaks the ground to kiss and dance with the sun seeking solace in its healing warmth
life is but a puff of wind a mere shadow here today and gone to-morrow
love exist but forever is a myth between spouses once expectations are not met
sadly, it seems unconditional love is hardly seen today lost in its complexity
hating the ones we love most and regretting the process of transformation
as the love we once knew evolves before our very eyes .
we battle all the odds facing the challenge of yesterdays
knowing that our love could save us from struggles and strife
sacrificing for the sake of financial freedom
you went away leaving me at bay reminiscing our yester days
suddenly, searching my heart from years of sacrifices and strife
by being practically apart we lost that spark that fire our burning needs inside
my world evolves for you then when we were younger
we build and fortified our dreams that comes from nothing
does time and distance become the hindrance that keeps our hearts apart?
five years without a man by my side I don’t know how it is to be loved
and held tight in the night …how it feels to be worshiped and caressed
like we seldom used to before while, we are younger .
to feel you, to love you with all of me
the remnants of yesterday is but a memory
when your smile became a blur
enigma in my mind
senses numb .
In my country fathers and mothers work abroad for financial comfort only to return that all their hopes and dreams turns to ashes . There are many families who are shattered because of poverty and financial hardships many resorted to work abroad to give their family financial freedom..
I nearly suffer the same fate but God let me see what is real and important in my life. A mother and father dreams and make sacrifices for the future of their children to give them a better life, better living and a good education. But, sometimes the heart of man is vile and wretched money change his way of thinking so, things change as pride consumes the heart and better reasoning .
Dreams that are spurned and turns to nothing animosity become an everyday painful existence. Love builds and heals our ailing soul but only God can change a man’s heart through prayers and supplications by accepting that without God in our daily existence our lives is not fruitful….it sums up to nothing we are in constant emotional conflicting battle between right and wrong. What really important in life is peace of mind by being joyful content ,happy and thankful in everything we have. I learned that when spouses quarrel it’s the children who deeply suffers.
Realizing that nothing really last forever, forever is a myth even our lives will end before we know it. God directs our paths and plans our destiny but gives us free will to choose whichever way we go.
I, will sacrifice for my children they are my life and my very essence letting them wander in a very complex and confusing world is hard for me to bear if they are lost.
