Whispering Goodbyes

1
softly my heart shout out to bid goodbyes
whisperings echoes from within that never lies
kissed all that has been and leave them behind
then walk away with eyes that seem so blind
2
what comes ahead are an unknown riddle
under the misty willows like spirits that meddle
upon my weary body, this heart, and soul feeble
all of life is a card laid down in one great gamble
3
the earthen ground holds my feet still and steady
while the calling of the wind whistles a mellow melody
the whispering sound that sinks deep into my bones
hailed my inner voice in the silent wailing tones
4
the miseries i live long that i wanted to just slip away
like a fool lost in my own self to run far and astray
but the truth that i hold in my thoughts i couldn’t betray
the desires that i longed dwelt with me shall always stay
5
for life and through the years within my inner self hiding
a shadow cloaked with darkness silently creeping
out in the whirlpool of time to stay far apart and yonder
in the wilderness of deafening echoes mind ever ponder
6
with thoughts deep as the ocean in a thousand miles
heart drifting and flowing in the hues of sweet smiles
a taste of honey in petals of dewdrops moistened mist
the lasting sweet refrain from the cloistered inner beast
7
gambled and gain the burden of sorrow, i raised to surrender
shout out the pain, softly whispering goodbyes in prayer
my heart and my soul, I leave in your hands, be my keeper
from the silent chamber, was a thunder roaring more louder
8
hush, i say to the beating of my heart that goes fonder
let us bid goodbye from this world but not forever
for one day soon there will be another time to be together
the world where we will be born again and live forever
9
for when we will meet again and utter our sweet hello
will hold you close to breathe your air that i wouldn’t let go
this time i conceal everything in you within my heart
to live again and once more make our very own start.

    ‘Whispering Goodbyes’ is rich in imagery, the paintings alive. Yes. We should be at our homes. What’s germinated is to perish one day. We will overcome the Corona.
