LET THE SIGNAL BE GIVEN THEN ONLY

When Lights go out Come Again
When lights go out come again
think of me
a lonely bird flying sky high
am I the eagle you are in search

come to me when the lights go off
comfort me more than yourself
many told me today
they read me I'm good
but they leave no comments
lest I burst
they know not the time of travel
to the invisible universe
eternity
infinity
written in the language of the galaxy

even day light cannot change it
so abide with me

when the real time comes
no one will show the path unwritten
so burn your egos
remember me
I'm your real poem

Comments

am I the eagle you are in search(of)
sometimes we need to hear about what we have done right, and what we have created. appreciation, it feeds the soul! these are the lines (which were very hard to choose.) I liked best.

they know not the time of travel
to the invisible universe
eternity
infinity
written in the language of the galaxy

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

Today is our lovely Mother's day

all changes
hands face and smile

once who led you to school
now stands cool
awaiting your arrival

the one who buttered your toasts for you
now waits a soft slice of bread from you

the one who kissed you daily to school
now waits for a kiss

will you give
she thinks
a tear flows
down her cheek

she knows smells
now her repose
the son too has also gone
through change
his consort is all
for whom he remains

my son come once again
at least today
'tis my
Mother's rightful day

come and in my arms
do play
just for once
if you may...

if only for a wee while
but now today.
