FAITH LIES BURIED


Thy Humble Servant he always had been,
For him, you were generous, kind and serene,
No power could ever strip him of Faith,
But what lay before him, he'd never foreseen.

He hardly had wishes to ask from Above,
Life was simple, and peaceful, and pure, like a Dove,
And He thanked the Heavens for all that he had,
But deep down he knew, what was missing was LOVE!

And then one fine day, without any sort of warning,
Like a Fresh Breath of Air, LOVE at last came knocking,
He knew that at last all his prayers had been answered,
He had got what he Wanted, without even asking!


And Life passed by smoothly, without any care,
For they both had each other, They were walking on air,
But he never forgot to Thank the LORD,
Cause HE knew what he had now had come from UP THERE.

But then ONE DAY, She was taken away,
He was left all ALONE, life was in disarray,
He BEGGED and PLEADED with hands to the sky,
That what was HIS be RETURNED, but Heav'n offered NO RAY!

AND SO off to a graveyard he went with a spade,
He dug SIX FEET DEEP, and a TOMBSTONE he laid,
He cast all his Memories and Pains in that pit,
And He covered it up, and his heart brimmed with HATE.

Then He looked up to HEAVEN with bloodshot eyes,
He swore and cursed and severed all ties,
On the tombstone he scribbled, "REST IN PEACE,
Herein my LOVE, for ETERNITY lies."


And to date, his FAITH lies BURIED SOMEWHERE,
YES, till now his FAITH lies BURIED SOMEWHERE,
And the Tombstone screams - RIP...RIP....

  3. Hi CRD,

    Pretty good poetry there! The rhyming helped the flow, but was not necessary. So don't force a rhyme down your poem's throat... like the 'Ray' word at the fag end of the poem. Otherwise, take a bow buddy!

    By the way, is this autobiographical? Just suspicious. My journalistic keeda prompted this thought.

    Although I do have the talent for poetry, haven't attempted anything for years. In fact, years ago I wrote the Foreword to a book of poems Flame of Love by Bro. Kevin D'Souza ofm.

    Maybe one day when you publish your book of poems, you can invite me to write yours too.

  8. .......................
    Rest in Peace the grave did scream
    Her death din sink in
    tho twasnt a dream...

    He ran to the spot both day n night
    Sang, shreakd, swore,
    She was nowhere in sight..

    In denial that she is now apart
    Seasons flew, years raced,
    Weakening his heart...

    In utter despair awaiting his fate
    He speaks tirelessly
    To her, till date...

    Her presence seems intensely real
    He closes his eyes
    And kisses her curls..

    Nestling cozily they move into past
    .....
    Reliving each moment thus..
    He breathes his last...

    :)
