Shariara's Lament

Shariara's Lament

A Poem by MomzillaNC
"

Lyrics sung by a lonely soul along the shore of a stormy sea…

"



I lift my eyes to see you

Your smile once shone on me

We danced a while as one heart

Now I dance alone


The dance plays on

and alone I weep

for a promise lost

in fading memories

You sailed away

on a stormy day

And sank beneath the briny sea


I lift my eyes to see you

Your smile once shone on me

We danced a while as one heart

Now I dance alone


So now I wait

for your shade’s return

I stalk this shore

dancing here for you

With your faithful hound

trailing by my side

I embrace the foamy brine alone


I lift my eyes to see you

Your smile once shone on me

We danced a while as one heart

Now I dance alone

This poem reminds me a bit of It Is Well. I'm sure you know the story behind that song, if not, check it out on the internet. I've often thought what it might be like being left alone. I don't like the prospects. I know I would do a lot of talking to myself. My wife is my best friend, it would be hard to move on without her.
Well, you certainly are a wonderful poet. I found this very easy to read and digest. Too many times I find myself having to think about what the author is trying to say. I don't like thinking too much as I am but a simple minded person.
Have a wonderful day.

This piece has some significance to the muse or persona . I have seen a scene where couples relationship breaks apart . Of all the places that a person could have went to instead chose to go to asecluded area and stares at the bodies of water .... a lake to be specific . Some people pay ahefty price tag to live near a body of water . May it be a lake a pond a river or an ocean . But perhaps there's something about the calmness of an ocean that sort of mourns and symphatizes with a lamenting heart . And I wish friends are like that when we hit rock bottom . Its those moments that their words are critical and can do the most damage for we are at our most vulnerable moment . The calmness and silence of the ocean sort or consoles our heart and soul and to herald and coach us for acceptance and then nudge us to pick up the broken pieces in our life . Encouraging us to hope and dare to dream again .... This is a tender and lovely piece .
