If The One I Love Goes Before My Eyes...

If the one I love goes before my eyes
And I as well get drunk on grief,
Shall fade away our sweetest lies
Or shall my heart get broken into briefs.
But these smithereens of my heart will freeze
With the strands of tears and stagnant shrieks,
And I know someday these tears shall please
The lightless days of my ending weeks.
The days of sweetness shall once be over
And too our yearnings, hopes and dreams,
No man on earth shall live forever
And all shall be not what all do seem.
.......So lets all be now smitten to our woes,
.......And wait forever for what our life shows.

Sad theme. Excellently expressed. You are so young and yet so sage. Congratulations, young poet, the best is yet to come.
Death is an inevitable reality of life! Whether we like it or not, we have to accept it! Yet the death of those who are close to our heart make us drunk with grief! Great poem for your age Saheb!
