When you come
Home, after a loved one burying
Each corner of that
house seems a memory carrying.
So many a things
seem untold, unfelt, uncried.
Even if you had
the chance, to cram it all, and tried.
The moment has
gone. The years have past
The pause has
began that an eternity last.
YOU had your
chance and now it has passed.
All the crying, sighing,
in vain, the moment's passed
Stop! Think! Reflect!
There are still loved ones around!!
Is your attitude, behavior?
and style a block to love unbound.
Are you leaving Gaps
in communication, where love can be found.
Are you committing another
loved one unheard, unfelt, unloved to the ground.
Petty ego bruised
meant, prompted or accidental slights.
Can, if allowed
turn into wounds, conflict, obstacles, fights.
True love is rare
A very few and far apart.
Can we risk
losing them, being apart
Swallowed pride
a dose of humility can love bind.
And in its light
we can loved ones find.
