Be all and End all!

You’ve gone to a better world, they say

But then you’ve left me here

alone in the hands of this cruel world.

I hear your voice every passing second

Feel the hotness of your breath against my cheeks

What do I do to stop these never-ending tears

and a heart that beats your name.


I’m broken into bits and pieces

and want to tear myself apart

the heart which deeply, madly and fondly loved yours

now is left aghast.


As I stand here on this starry night,

Neither do I want to breathe nor do I want my heart to beat.

I look above to let out a silent prayer

And a small little star twinkle at me.

I know darling, you are up there

Whispering to me that it’s not the be all and end all.

I have promise in my heart and hope in my eyes

I will walk among the stars and the cloudless skies!
