Poem By Akham Nilabirdhwaja Singh

The Moon will shine,
Without your smile,
But no longer shall it be,
A Moon that shines for me,
Gone are the days,
When you'd just stay,
So close, smiling at me.

The Moon is cold,
So I am told,
And winter's here for me,
When love is gone,
There is no Sun,
The Moon is all I see.

Oh lonely Moon, my lonely Moon,
Poor orphan in the sky,
Detached from mother Earth,
Your barren surface has no life,
No hope, no love, no mirth.

Oh Moon alone,
Made out of stone,
Rotating in the sky,
A phantom ship,
No life to grip,
No tears to even cry,
No one can feel your loneliness,
As deeply as can I.

I love the symmetry in this poem. Love can be warm and cold at the same time. Thank you for this fabulous poem. To my favourites.
WOW! ONLY YOU, dearest Poetess, can feel the moon I cite you here: No one can feel your loneliness, As deeply as can I............................Do you see your reflections in her appearance? Most beautiful and very touchingly said, this is a poem withn greatest melancholy I see the reflections in my heart. This will be a Classic Poem, dear Poetess! I have enjoyed very much totally.
Lovely poem of heartbreak and such empathy from the author.
Beautiful poem with a very satisfying rhyming scheme. I am particularly struck by the poignant use of personification in the 3rd stanza. It's definitely a 10 from me!
Simply beautiful! In the days of our loneliness even Nature seems to shed tears with us.
