It’s been so long, since she’s been gone,

She, who every role to perfection did don,

The quintessence of beauty and grace; as bright as the sunshine,

Oh! How I prided myself she was only mine,

She was the Kohinoor in my crown,

Behind me she stood, when I was up and by me when I was down

I gave her precious jewels and silks to adorn,

Built houses and amassed wealth, “For you,” I said yet she looked forlorn,

I shrugged it off and laughed it away,

Didn’t see the tears behind the smile so gay,

Was blind, I did not see,

That all she wanted was time spent with me,

Then one day, she said “I’m tired. Can’t wait no more. Take care. Goodbye,”

She breathed her last; she shut her doe-shaped eye,

Now I stand tired and worn,

I yearn for that love that once was… I drown; for me I mourn…

    1. Yes it’s so sad. We are so busy building castles that we forget to create a life with the person we wish to share it with. It’s lovely to know you felt the pain, reading the poem.
