The Sweetness of Being Apart
Beautiful poetry by a talented writer.
When birds depart from native shores, Too many fly astray: This forlorn life the soul abhors - My love was swept away! Across the oceans - raging, deep, I send a warm embrace: The longing - harsh and bittersweet - Sets parted hearts ablaze! Soar higher, soft-voiced nightingale - Your songs light up the night: Pure sorrow carried by the gale Transcends a swift delight! The separation draws us near, And turns into fine art: There is a certain sweetness, dear, In being far apart!
